That's my resolution for 2010. A month late, but still useful. The preschoolers demonstrated the concept. We have choices. We can buy into the game when something or someone is bugging us. Or we can walk away. Or we can milk the situation for its entertainment value. The preschoolers usually choose a third option. They wallow for a time with the annoyance, checking to see what diversions it might offer. Does the ignoyance have the potential to get the annoyer in trouble? Does being an agnorer promise brownie points?
What position am I playing in this game?
