As I've mentioned, there's a McDonald's on the way home. We pass by. I had no intention of stopping. We're past the entrance. We turn onto the next street and the following conversation takes place:
Colin: Mom, can we go to McDonald's?
Me: No. We've already passed it. I want to go home.
Colin: You could turn around.
Me: Not today Buddy.
Colin: How about this for a punish? If you don't turn around and go back to McDonald's you can't have lunch ever again!
We did not turn around. I did have lunch. Colin ate at home. How about this for a punish, indeed.
