Me: (ladling out into mugs) Here, the heavy cream was about to go bad, so I made homemade hot chocolate.
Gamma: (sips) Yeah….no. There’s too much chocolate.
Beta: (sips) Meh. Too much cinnamon.
Me: There is literally a dusting in there. Barely enough to scent it. You’re nuts.
Beta: (shrugs, places it on the counter, leaves)
Me: (hands Alpha a mug)
Alpha: (sullen) No. (leaves)
