Cleaning house physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Miko, the Balinese, always always wants to play. Sunni, not this time.

Miko: Hey look, I am bowing in submission. Let’s play.
Sunni: Silent look.
Miko: You seem miffed. Don’t you want to play?
Sunni: Still the silent look.
Miko: Hmmm, I’ll just look away so you don’t think I am being aggressive (which I’m not). You keep thinking about playing.
Sunni: No thinking necessary. I am not playing.
Miko: It’s been 2 whole minutes and you still look miffed. Well, I’m not leaving until we play!
Sunni: I am not playing and I am not leaving.
And the negotiation for playtime continues.
