A tough question in real life

“Grab that crepe. It’s all yours, H. A whole banana is in it.”

“No, thanks, dad. You know…”

“I know, H. You HATE bananas. Don’t you think it’s easy to deal with your likes and dislikes at home and at kindergarten? You can simply say Nope to reject the offer.”

“uh huh. Simple. And I like that.”

“But the reality is really harsh. You know, you like S in your class, right? Then you would get a kick out of playing at her house.”

“Yeah, why?”

“What if her mother, just out of hospitality, brings all those crepes, saying, ‘Here, lots of banana crepes. Share them with S. I’m sure you’ll like them.’?”

“I’d run out od the room?”

“How would you see her next time?”

“I’d rather not run…”

“Hard, isn’t it? Very different from quasi-reality in kindergarten? … Your dad doesn’t know what to do, either.”
