Shortly after I asked my preschool-aged kid to put away the toys strewn around the living room, I heard fake hiccup sounds. Wondering what she was up to this time, I poked my head back out of the hallway to see as many toys as before littering the carpet.
“I thought I asked you to get your toys off of the floor,” I said.
“I can’t Mommy,” my child replied, followed by another very loud fake burp. “I have the pick-ups.”
