Silent Treatment

Remember the old commercial for Tootsie Pops? How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop?

I feel like I’m living that with Donkey. How many times to I have to ask the same question before I get an answer?

The world may never know.


  1. I thought the answer was 3?
    I’m sorry. Hopefully the response comes soon.

    1. Three licks and one bite. 🙂

      There will be no response. It’s a power play on his part, all about control.

  2. I’m still waiting for the answer, but I think it may be 18. At least for me. I will be truly free when my child is 18.

    1. I am looking forward to the day I no longer have to discuss decisions with him. I’m afraid I’ll never be free. He’ll still be around-college, marriage, grandchildren-but at least I won’t have to talk to him after the kids are 18.

speak loudly, donkeys are sleeping
