Me: I have told you too many times. Do your laundry now. 5, 4, 3, 2 . . .
Boy: Mom! The devil's telling me not to, but I was just about to kick him in the head and do what you said!
Me: Okay. Give him a kick and go do your laundry.
Boy: (kicking himself in his own head)
Me: Why are you kicking yourself?
Boy: (patiently) Because the devil's in my head!
