ma-nip-u-la-tion

a conversation the boys strategically had while i was in the kitchen with them and they were (voluntarily) washing windows:

a boy :: i really wish we could watch television.
the other boy :: yeah, that would be great.
a boy :: i wonder if they make movies about washing windows so we could see how it’s     done.
the other boy :: yeah! then we could learn and be really good window washers.
a boy :: i wonder if there is a curious george show about washing windows?
the other boy :: THERE IS!! we should watch george and he can teach us!
two boys in almost perfect unison :: mom! we NEED to watch george so we can be better washers!
me :: no.

but they did earn points for their sneaky conversation skills.
