Contemplating Consequences

Recently, the boy was drinking lemonade on the toddler chair we have in the living room, and he spilled it all over.

He didn’t mention a word to Eric, who was the only one home at the time.

A short while later, Eric noticed that the chair was soaking wet.

“Hey, did you spill something on this chair?” he asked.

“Just water, Daddy,” replied the boy.

“Are you sure about that?” Eric asked, picking little bits of lemon pulp off the fabric chair. “Are you sure it wasn’t lemonade?”

“Welllll,” the boy paused, and seemed to reflect for a bit.  Then he tilted his head and asked “What would you do if I told you it was lemonade?”
