Just eat it

(Scene opens with maternal unit watching son stuff the last few bites of dinner into his mouth)
Me: Was it good, Beta?
Beta: (chipmunk cheeks, nods furiously)
Me: Do you know what the sauce was on the chicken?
Beta: (still chewing, shakes head)
Me: Spaghetti sauce. I used the last of the spaghetti sauce in cooking the chicken so from now on, I don’t want a single damn complaint how you don’t like sauce on your noodles. Am I clear?
Beta: (contemplates his now empty dinner plate and sighs) Okay.
