The Tricycle Thief

THIS BOY IS NOT AS PRECIOUS AS HE SEEMS

A snippet of our daily conversation on the way to the park:

MAMA: OK, we're almost there. Now remember...

HAL: We don't take people's fings, and we share. (kinda precious!)

MAMA: That's right! Good job. Especially bikes...we don't take people's new bikes, right?

HAL: We don't take people's fings, etc.

MAMA: Where are you going?! No, no, no!!!!
What did Mommy say? *sigh*

HAL: Bwahahahahaha! (*squealing* whilst running toward someone's trike, and about to take it; cries hysterically when I intercept him)

MAMA: We don't take people's bikes, honey. It's not very nice.

HAL: (crying) OK, OK!

LATER THAT SAME MORNING...

HAL: (in a very precious, non chalant tone) OK, bye! See you later! (waves to me as if he's just going for a little stroll, no big deal, runs to bike...)

MAMA: *sigh*

Apparently, I need to step up the whole "stealing could land you in the big house" routine.

The sun and sand is not very inviting at Club Fed.

Even us grown-ups still want to steal other people's cool bikes! ;)
