And knowing is half the battle

Scott and I sometimes… grapple verbally with Henry, and usually these fights—excuse me, I mean enlightening encounters—revolve around the following problems:

1. He will not comply with our demands no matter how many times we issue them;

2. He will demand something of us and keep demanding, no matter how long we try to fend him off.

Wrap your minds around those for a minute, and then marvel at how two adults can rationalize being correct on both issues. And yet we can! Because we are raging hypocrites, you see. And we think it's okay as long as we know that we are.
