"i could give you this one now, or I could give you two of these if you wait"
oh you have to go get the other one?
"no, you just have to wait for it"
so you have the both right now
"yes and I'll give you one now, or--"
but you could just give me them both now if you wanted to
"i mean yes but--"
but instead you want me to sit here thinking about you arbitrarily not giving me both
"it will let me learn something about you"
yes, it's very clearly me we're learning something about right now
