So max is having a fit because he wants to go to his friends house,
but he won’t wear socks or shoes over his cut up foot.
He says it’s uncomfortable.
We’re trying to protect his foot from dirt and infection.

“You don’t understand what it’s like to have a cut like this!”
He’s throwing himself against the wall

“And I’m not going back to school in socks!”

My wife who’s a germaphobe says,
“You think i’m going to let you walk around that filthy school barefoot?”

My wife is so pissed at him, but I keep telling her this is comedy gold.
Pattern interrupt – she starts laughing.
Then Ella says, “That’s why its called whinypaluza!”
My wife has to run to the bathroom before she pees her pants.

Max is throwing things and crying.
Ella, “Whinypaluza all over the place!”

“Are you going to stay in the house and cry all day?”
“I’m not going to wear any socks ever again!”

He’s on the ground crying, punching the floor and kicking.

It’s going to be a great day, I can just tell.
