Conversations with ZP

ZP: Mommy, can you help me play this computer game?
Me: Okay, let me lie down for five minutes and then I’ll help you.
[exactly five minutes later]
ZP: Mommy, it’s been five minutes.  Now can you help me?
Me: [sigh] Okay, what is it?  Do you need me to read the instructions?
ZP: No.  I’m trying to trick the computer to think I’m nine years old but it’s not working.
