    Yeah my mom used to count to ten when i was younger and I always ran when she got to one cause I thought it was funny and now I wished that I would just listened to and not be so bad. (Report) Reply

    It would seem that you could stay out of trouble that way,
    ... BUT, you didn't help,
    ... or maybe you tried to help too much,
    ... and silly you - - - you thought that you could win!
    ... What were you thinking?

    Have you ever thought there might be a 'second' count to ten after this one. If not what's she going to do?
