6 weeks: Darling, it's your mother on the phone.
6 months: It's for you.
6 years: Can't you hear the PHONE?????

6 weeks: You didn't have a great childhood.
6 months: It's true that your parents are awful.

6 years: Here's 20 bucks. Buy what you want.

6 weeks: What would you like to see?
6 months: What about let's seeing "Evita" instead?
6 years: I saw "Evita." You should plan to see it.

6 weeks: It's not serious; don't spoil your make-up.
6 months: Watch it, will you?
6 years: God! you're clumsy.

6 weeks: I'm not really in agreement with that.
6 months: Now there's where you're wrong!

6 months: Sheesh! You could be more careful.
6 years: Don't ever touch my computer again!

6 weeks: I mowed the lawn. Ain't it neat?
6 months: I don't have any gas for the mower.
6 years: This weekend, it's your turn.

6 weeks: You're right, it could use a dash of salt.
6 months: This is a little blah, eh?
6 years: You're just as bad a cook as your mother!

6 weeks: Mmmmm. That perfume drives me crazy.
6 months: Don't you think the perfume is a bit strong?
6 years: Sheesh! Did you take a bath in it?

6 weeks: I made reservations at a cool restaurant.
