I Don't Understand Eleven Year-Old Boys

I asked Jake to take off his sheets and bring them to the laundry room. A couple of hours later I went in his room and noticed his fitted sheet was still on his bed. I complained that I’d already washed his sheets and that he should have taken them all off. “I’m sorry, I forgot.” He apologized.

Fast forward another couple of hours, I went in Jake’s room to find him lying on top of three pillowcase-less pillows on top of his mattress pad. I said, “Jake, why don’t you have a sheet on? That’s gross!”

“Oh, I thought you said I couldn’t use one.” -- I can only assume he thought I was trying to punish him but taking away his sheets.
