The feral goblin in my head who likes to cause trouble: Hey, hey you know those hearts you like to knit? Think you could make one all thick/3d/like those little candy hearts?
The adult I pretend is in charge: I mean sure, I could do that, I see how I’d do that. But I probably don’t actually need to.
Goblin: Betcha can’t.
Adult: No, I mean I’m sure I could, all you’d need to do is…
Goblin: LIES LIES LIES I WON’T BELIEVE IT UNLESS YOU SHOW ME AND I WON’T STOP YELLING UNTIL YOU DO AND I CAN GO ALL DAY…
Adult: Oh my god fine. Shut up. See, it would work like this. More or less. Hmm, now that I have one knit I can see how I’d change a bunch of stuff, hold on, lemme tweak a few things.
Goblin: (snickers quietly as the plan to generate a whole pile of hearts comes one step closer to fruition)
