The road to independence

Why are you in a mood?’

‘You’re standing in my space!’

‘What space?’

‘My rock!’

‘Why can’t we share?’

‘Because it’s time for us to go our separate ways!’

‘But I don’t want to be separate.’

‘Mother says it’s time. We might be twins, but we have to move on.’

‘But we’re family.’

Exactly!’

‘But I thought families were supposed to stick together.’

‘And so they should.’

‘So can I live on this rock with you?’

‘No!’

‘Why not?’

‘Because it’s my space!’

‘Don’t you love me anymore?’

‘That’s a stupid question.’

‘If you love me then you’d let me live on this rock with you.’

‘No!

‘But I don’t want to live on my own.’

‘And I do!’

‘Can I live next rock?’

‘If you must!’

‘Can I visit you every day?’

‘Of course!’

‘Ok, I’ll give it a try.’

‘How’s it going on your new rock?’

‘It’s ok!’

‘I see you have visitors already.’

‘They’re girls!’

‘Can I come over?’

‘No!’

‘Why not?’

‘This is my space!’

‘We’re supposed to be family.’

‘Exactly!’

‘What’s that supposed to mean?’

‘You should give me some space!’
