Inverse Definitions 2

George has let Harry play with the truck he brought from home. I comment George on his "good sharing". Wanting to share in the praise, Harry pipes up. "I'm good at sharing!" I like to give praise where earned, but, to be frank, Harry has a ways to go on the sharing front, and I never give out false praise. I try to be kind in my response. "Well, you're learning to share. You're getting better every day." Harry knows he's being short-changed, and will have nothing of it. "No, I'm good at sharing!" he insists. "See? I'm sharing George's truck!!"
