The Monkey Dance

The Monkey Dance

Alright,  the day has already started to go downhill.  I went into the bathroom this morning and found a mess.  It had all the hallmark signs of Gavin being responsible. 
I simply asked him about it and he immediately began,  what I’m going to call the Monkey Dance.

He began jumping up and down,  all while dramatically flailing his arms above his head. All I did was ask him if he had made the mess.  His response,  aside from the monkey dance,  was to say,  “probably yes and probably no”. 

I said to him in reply,  “Gavin,  you either did or you didn’t”.  All he would say,  while continuing to jump around was,  “I don’t know, probably yes and probably no”.
I get why he was answering this way.  He didn’t want to get in trouble by telling me the truth,  or he didn’t know how to answer.  Most likely,  he didn’t want to incriminate himself.

This lead to our first,  award winning meltdown of the day.  It was only 7am.  That doesn’t give me much hope for the day.
