A parenting success, methinks

The hard working executive returns home to his slippers and cardigan, a favourite chair, perhaps to take in a warming cocoa in the arms of his caring family.  As the good father I am, I enquire to the daughter 'how was her day?'


I gently enquire 'Nothing interesting happen'd?'


I mildly suggest with an ever so slightly raising of the tone 'Is it a mono-syllabic day or what? Have you taken a vow of silence and failed by a tad?'

"Shut. Up."

I see this as a success in parenting, a100% increase in parent child communication. I should write a book.
