Dysfunctional Wednesday-Speak Up! I Can’t Hear You!

 On our walk there today, Julius, Isaiah and I came to our favorite one, and we unsuspectingly came upon a man sleeping on one of the benches with an open beer. He looked just, as shocked to see us even though my boys were loud enough to wake the dead. Long story, short….I wasn’t comfortable. 
I didn’t know the guy, he had been drinking and I was in the middle of a wooded trail alone with two little boys. It was about this time I wished that I had taken the time to train my children to never say “why?” 
Me(whispering to Isaiah): Let’s move further down the trail.
Isaiah: WHY!!??
Me(gritting my teeth): Shhh! *softly* Because I do not feel comfortable being here, so we need to move on.
Isaiah: ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THAT GUY??!!!
Me(slaps forehead): *softly* Forget about it.
Julius: WHAT ARE YOU GUYS TALKING ABOUT?!
Me(nonchalant): Oh nothing.
Julius: YES! I HEARD YOU GUYS!!
Isaiah: OHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! (the light bulb came on) Just come on Julius I want to show you this bridge over here.
Me: *shaking my head*
