"Son - will you please not take out all of the clothes in your drawers, and just throw them around? I don't think it's fair that I should keep folding them over and over again." grump grump.
"Well, you see, I was playing a game. An imaginative game. Well, it's like this game where you put the pants on your body, and the shirt on your legs. (big smile) I call it Flip-Flop!"
"Oh, I see."
