Get in bed

“Get in bed, sweetheart, it’s time to go to sleep.”

“Tell me a story, Grandma.”

“Okay, get in bed. What story do you want to hear, Little Red Riding Hood?”

“No.”

Goldilocks and the Three Bears?”

“No.”

Three little pigs?”

“No.”

Snow White?”

“No.”

“Which one do you want to hear? Grandma’s running out of stories.”

“Tell me the one about how when you were a little girl you would go outside to play and nobody had to watch you to make sure you weren’t stolen away. Tell me the one about how you could leave your bike in the back yard and nobody would take it. Tell me the one about the front door not being locked. Tell me the one about your house not having a security system. I like those stories, Grandma, you make up good stories.”
