As a child I wanted to rule because I didn't ever want to do chores. Chores were a nuisance. I had way better things to do, feed my dolls non-existent food,talk to my imaginary friends and pester my parents for snacks...constantly. I don't know about you but these things were rather exhausting. So I concluded that I must never lift a finger, it'd only pose a threat to my daily routine. Which was basically a combination of sleeping, eating, being annoying and more sleeping.
My routine was sacred and when the day came that I was inevitably told that I should start doing chores ( which only included tidying my room once in a while), I wasn't happy in the slightest. So what did I do? Throw a tantrum. Nope. Storm off. Nope. Accept it. Hell no. I decided I'd become the Queen. Wait...what? I would become Queen. Because in the mind of an eight year old becoming royalty equaled zero chores. I was told many times that I couldn't become Queen because we already had one. I'd always reply " She's a very logical women and we can share the throne".
We never ended up sharing. So after I realized I could never become royalty. And after long nights of crying I made other plans. If I couldn't rule the country ,I'd rule the house.I would sit in my throne ( Any random chair I could find) watch some TV and just do nothing. That lasted about 3 minutes.
I did in fact end up tidying my room and my ruling was short lived.
Did you do anything as a child to get out of doing chores?
