So S. and I are in the basement this afternoon, installing the final piece of our new entertainment system. We hear arguing upstairs. After it escalates, I head their direction to stop the nonsense. On my way up, I hear C., in tears, yelling at M..

M. responds, in her ‘I’m not really sorry’ voice, “I’m sorry, I didn’t hear you.”

C. shrieks back at her, “THEN YOU NEED TO GET NEW EARS!”

To M.’s credit, she just laughed in her face.

Apparently M. touched the pita that C. was eating and it ended up on the floor. So the reaction was totally appropriate.
