Whirling Dervish seems to like to argue and is very persistent about getting a chance to express his point of view. Case in point:
WD: Mom, I am full. Can I be excused 'til dessert?
Me: You know the rule. Please eat your vegetables, then you may be excused.
WD: But, I am full, I don't want to eat my peas. I am full with my peas. I just want dessert.
Me: No dessert until your peas are eaten.
WD: But, MOM! Did you hear me? I said, "I am full of it!"
Yes, my dear, I believe you are . . .
