A Conversation With a Child

About an hour ago I had the following conversation with a child who was brought into my office, hysterically crying.

I waited until he completely calmed down and then asked him to explain why he was in my office.

The conversation went like this:

" sister was pretend marrying my friend Fabricio? was going to, um...Best Man? And then, I her up the isle...and then, umm...she said she didn't want me to be the Best Man anymore?"

"So what did you do? Did you hurt her in some way?"

Him: "No"

Me: "So why are you in my office?"

Him: "I stopped the wedding."

Me: "How did you do that?"

"I wouldn't give the ring back."
