Conversations With My Daughter #89

I enter the living room. Alice is sprawled on the sofa whilst playing the PS4.

Alice, can you move please?

[Silence. Alice moves her thumbs over the buttons]

Please can you move? I’d like to sit down.

[Eyes still fixed on the screen] “No Daddy”.

No? But I’d like to sit there as well, and you’re taking up room…

“No. Remember Rosa Parks.”

Alice, did you really just compare your sitting on too much of the sofa, playing on the Playstation, to the birth of the civil rights movement?

“Yes. Sit somewhere else”.
