The need to know now

Not that he’s seen “Iron Man” (or will for the next several years), but for the past week, Anthony has been begging to go to Burger King to get one of the Iron Man toys that currently come in their children’s meals. So yesterday, I used lunch at the Home of the Whopper as bribery to get Ant to behave through trips to the grocery store and Wal-Mart.

He was not disappointed, scoring a Flip N’ Fly War Machine, the same toy his friend Dylan had brought to preschool earlier in the week.

“Mommy,” Ant said as we were leaving the restaurant, “when we get home, can you e-mail Dylan to let him know I got the same Iron Man as him?”

Stifling a laugh, I asked, “Why don’t you just tell him at school tomorrow?”

“Because,” Ant replied, “e-mail is much faster.”
