Classes were called off for the second day in a row due to bad weather. Miguel's quarterly exams start the following day but by 9:30AM he's already reviewed all his lessons and done his piano drills. Nothing left for him to do the rest of the day.
Me, about to leave for work (ha! late!) : Miguel, I think that you should have a goal for today.
Miguel, playing while watching TV: What?
Me: I know! Why don't we ask Lola (Grandma) to teach you the rest of your piano piece? After all, you were supposed to have piano lessons today.
Miguel, self-importantly: I already have goals.
Me: Like what?
Miguel: Watch TV.
Me: That's not a goal! Okay, that's it...your goal for the day is to learn the rest of your piano piece.
Miguel: I don't want to learn the rest of my piano piece.
Me: I'll give you 5 extra minutes of Playstation time if you learn it.
Miguel, turning away: No thank you, I don't need 5 extra minutes.
Me: But if you don't learn it you'll lose 5 minutes.
Miguel, suddenly running toward Lola: Lola, can you teach me the rest of my piano piece?
