If your ex-wife calls and asks if the kids can stay over because she has be on the road at seven to catch a plane home for a funeral, you say:
A. Sure thing, Buttercup. I know you’d do the same for me.
B. I don’t know, you’re calling at the last minute, but I’ll see what I can do and call you back.
C. Sorry, I’m playing poker tonight six doors down the block from your house and won’t be home until late.
