Me: Henry, I have some bad news. There's no parade tonight because of the rain. But we will have your soccer game in the morning.
Me: I know, I'm so sorry. But we will still play soccer tomorrow.
Henry: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! But you have to sleep before tomorrow!
Me: I know, but then you'll have energy to play if you sleep.
Henry: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I don't LIKE bad news! (goes to his room and shuts the door)
