On chilly Winter mornings I like to play what I call the “waiting game.”
Here are the rules of the waiting game.
- I wake first. I stick my foot out from under the blanket, it’s too cold to get up. The heating needs to be switched on, but if I get up to switch the heating on I’ll be cold (you see the problem here?!)
- So I wait for you to get up
- I pretend to be asleep
- If you take too long I might cough or “accidentally” kick you
- When you wake up, you will get up (straight away) and put the heating on (and maybe be lovely and make a cup of tea for me), thus solving my problem
And this is how we play the waiting game, and don’t think you can beat me at the waiting game because I have had a lot of practice at this and I can play for hours!
