You Going to Work?

Aaron’s beginning to understand that Lillian leaves to go to work at night.  One night, as he was going to bed, he asked her, “You going to work?”

“Why you going to work?”
“So I can make money.”
“To buy you presents.”
“But why you gotta go to work?”

At that point, it went around again.  Aaron was playing the badger-you-until-you-answer-what-I-want game.  Finally, he accepted that she was going to go, and he went to bed.

The next morning, when Lillian returned from work, he woke up, went to her and asked, “You go to work?”

“Yeah, I’m back already.”
“You get the money?”
