Oh no! This is not how it’s supposed to go!!

“That is just NOT how it goes!”

When my daughter Becky was little – say, 2 or 3 – she was already quite precise.  As an adult, she still likes things to be orderly and predictable.  We used to laugh about how she would object to something that was not going according to “Becky Rules”.  “That’s NOT how it goes!” became a family classic line we still occasionally bring out as an affectionate memory.
