The Tyrant and the Tenderheart
What has happened to my little lover? The little boy who once asked me to marry him on a daily basis and would greet me at the door, kneeling with a cushion in his hands topped with a gift of jewelry, has become a rogue. He is constantly beating on his sisters, especially Special K. He terrorizes them, hits them, kicks them, and pulls their hair. Our despot has been spending time sitting in time out due to his nearly constant bad behavior. Where did our little sweetheart go?
Wingnut had enough of the terrorist this last weekend, and after pulling Special K's hair for the up-teenth time, he had it out with Lil' Wingnut. After lecturing the lil' guy on proper behavior toward ladies, Wingnut did what so many of us parents have done, he offered to have Special K pull Lil' Wingnut's hair in retaliation. When parents make this kind offer we are most often met with silent faces filled with confusion, resulting in inaction. Special K, however, completely collapsed into a heap and began weeping at the idea of harming her baby brother. Tyrant, meet Tenderheart. You don't deserve her.
