me: "Lily, do you want to wear the pink shirt, or the yellow shirt?"
Lily: "The red one."
me: "Okay, the red one, then. Oh, look, it has Elmo on it. Is Elmo your favorite Sesame Street Character? Or is it Zoe?"
Lily: "It's Cookie Monster. Yumyumyumyum."
me: "Yeah, I like Cookie Monster. Come here so we can put this shirt on."
Lily: [ignores me.]
me: "I said come here. We need to put your shirt on."
Lily: [still ignores me.]
me: "Lily, you can either come here, or you can go on time out."
Lily: [looks at me briefly, then runs away.]
me: "or that."
