Cheesy Battle

One lovely Friday afternoon in a supermarket. A mom and her toddler in front of a produce freezer. Round #1 "Cheese!" the boy pointing at some tiny but pricey cheese wrapped in a shiny bright red transparent paper. "You never eat it!" mom said. Round #2 "I waaaant that cheese!" the boy screamed. "But you never eat it. You didn't eat it last time, remember?" mom sounded like a broken record. Round #3 "I really want it," said the boy with teary eyes, on the verge of throwing a tantrum. "Promise me you eat it. Otherwise I'm not buying it again next time." He gave her no pinky promise but she gave in anyway and put the object of desire in the cart. He totally had her in the palm of his hand.
