Mama: Boys, camp is coming up on Sunday. Are you sure that you want to go?
Deniska: I don't know Mama. I think I want to stay home with you.
Mama: (thinking to myself, that's my boy! He loves me. I'm feeling pretty good right now.)
Nikolai: Well, I want to go!
Mama: Why Nikolai? (Said in my most comforting voice. Surely, it had to be because of the lure of the outside and swimming! Yes, that was it!)
Nikolai: Mom, don't take this personal, but I just need a break.
Mama: (puzzled) A break? Well, you know Deniska will be in the same cabin with you.
Nikolai: Not Deniksa, Mom, from you!
Needless to say, I packed his suitcase first!
