I love trying to open the lower kitchen cupboard door. Love it. I don't get too many chances to do it, since I have to fit in so many other priorities (like trying to get into the laundry closet, trying to open the bathroom cupboard doors, etc.).
When I do find the time to get into the kitchen cupboards (read: slamming the cupboard door against the foundation repeatedly because I am this close to actually opening it, but not quite), my mother is always there to rain on my parade.
"BRACH! NO!" says she.
"Slam, slam, slam" from me.
"BRACH-LEE! I MEAN IT! NO!!!" she exclaims.
See, now I have always believed that "NO" was merely a suggestion. When she says, "NO," I hear:
"BRACH, YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER NOT TRYING TO OPEN THE KITCHEN CUPBOARD DOOR...BUT THAT IS COMPLETELY UP TO YOU."
Am I wrong here?
