On the plus side, Dad’s dinner won’t be spoiled. On the minus, the baby’s dinner will be spoiled.
When you don’t know thatababy’s true potential
Um… ThataChocolateChip was ThataGood?
It was an inside job!
Thatababy: “Pass the crumbs.”
One of my favorite Monty Python skits: “Burglar!” “No, no, you’re just trying to sell me a set of encyclopedias!” “I assure you, madam, I just want to rob the place.” “Oh, well, in that case, come in!” “Mind you, I don’t think you’ve ever really given proper thought to what a fine set of ecyclopedias can do for you!”
Technically they were neither. Taking something from a cookie jar would be theft. And I have no idea what the passive voice of that is (“Thieved from”?)
Burglary is the illegal entry of a building with intent to commit a crime such as theft or assault. Not a cookie jar.
Robbery is, roughly, taking something from a person with violence or the threat of it (so you can’t, say, “rob a bank”, if there’s no-one there at the time to threaten). I presume there was no-one in the jar guarding the cookies.
Kid’s going to be an American lawyer, obviously.
