20 minutes later, Beckett returns. "Mama," he says, sweetly. "Could you get this and this and this and take them and do your work in my room while I play?" Well, how do I say no to that? So I grab my evidence book, my notes, and a legal pad and go sit on his bed while he plays. He wants to listen to Veggie Tales, so this is what about 20 minutes of my morning consisted of:
If you like to talk to tomatoes,
If a squash can make you smile
Rule 406: Habit Evidence
"Regular response to a repeated specific stimulus."
-Very narrow and specific
If you like to waltz with potatoes
Up and down the produce aisle.
Have we got a show for you!
Personal habits: Special kind of semi-reflexive or automatic behavior that occurs only in response to a specific stimulus.
It is at about this moment that I get kicked (quite hard) in the kidneys. Then Beckett jumps on my back screaming "Hut hut, Mama! I tackled you!" Evidence has officially been turned into a contact sport.
