Like a caterpillar

“Daddy, I’m not going to take a bath until you let me smell the maggots one more time.”

What’s most wrong with this statement?

(1) child giving parent an ultimatum
(2) presence of maggots somewhere in our home
(3) implication that he doesn’t need to bathe unless exposed to maggots
(4) suggestion that I let him smell the maggot-pile in the first place
(5) that he needs another hit of rot-waft

    OR the fact that after smelling the maggot pile once, he was hoping to go back for more.
    OR the fact that my entire family ate dinner at your (maggot-infested) house on Saturday night. 🙂
