Determined to be miserable

A conversation from tonight in the van after dropping off Gabby for Activity Days
Dario: *pitiful sigh* "Mom, when will I be old enough
to go to Activity Days?"
Me: "Activity Days is for girls, Dario. But when you're 8 years
old you can go to boy scouts."
Dario: "No. I don't want to go to boy scouts. I'm not going to
Me: "Yes you will. They do activities just like the girls only
it's with all boys."
Dario: "Well I don't like it and I'm not going."
Me: "Yep, you will go, and I'm sure you'll like it."
Dario: "NO! I don't want to go!" *starts to cry* "Why should I?
What's in it for me?"
Me: "Fun. That's what's in it for you."
Dario: "I HATE fun!"

Funny boy!
I dunno, sometimes I feel that way myself. I talk myself out of the fun before I even know what it is...
