K: OK, meeting in 15 minutes at the dining room table.
Z: I can’t make it.
K: Oh, why not?
K: If I can’t make a meeting, I have to give my boss a good reason.
Since Z can’t think of one, he meets K at the table.
K: OK, I’ll take the minutes. We need a family mission statement.
Z closes his eyes.
Z: Mom, you’re taking this thing too far.
K: OK, OK. How have you been feeling?
Z does not want to meet, but perks up a little when the meeting turns to chores and allowances.
Despite the resistance, K thinks the meeting went well.
