NB: "What will happen if I growl at him?"
Me: "It scares him, see?! Now he's all fussy."
Me: "NB, come back to the table and finish this milk! Don't waste it!"

Me: "It gets sour and smelly and then we have to throw it out."
NB: "Well, what happens when we throw it out?"
Me: "......It's wasted, and no one gets to drink it."
Me: "NB, it's time for bed, go brush your teeth."
NB: "What happens when we brush our teeth?"
Me: "...........*and then my brain explodes*...........
