Birds of a Feather

(Gideon, Age 7, is getting ready to go to a friend’s house)

ME: Gideon, do you know the rules when you go to someone’s house?
ME: OK, what if your friend wants to glue feathers to you and asks you to jump off the house to see if you can fly. Would you do it?
GIDEON: Yes! That sounds awesome!
ME: No! You should say, “No.” Don’t do anything messy or dangerous.
GIDEON: Oh. In other words, don’t do anything fun?

Is this payback for my childhood?
