The other night we were coming home from a friend's house and it was late. But Z desperately needed a bath. So, in order to try to get it done quickly, I told him he could take a shower instead. Now normally, he likes taking a shower, but for some reason this time he decided to insist on a bath. After a few minutes of negotiation, Nathan stepped in and said, "Z, you can either pick the shower or the hose." Without a moment's hesitation Z replied, "The hose!" Nathan's face was pretty funny -- clearly he'd just had his bluff called. But, true to his word, Nathan gave Z a hose down when we got home. A good time was had by all, and Z went to bed happy AND clean.
