These simple few lines below shows the difference in how my wife and myself might tell our son what to do in the event of a fire…
ME: If there’s ever a fire in here. Get the hell out.
WIFE: If there’s ever a fire in here climb out the window but first make sure there’s no burglars or murders marching toward the house or sexual predators flying overhead in hot air balloons. Also, if you have time, make sure you turn off the lights in your room. If the house doesn’t burn all the way down we don’t want a high electric bill.
