My kids like to ask to do silly things that clearly don't require permission. I'm fairly certain this is just a way to engage my attention so I just play along. Sometimes though, I realize belatedly that they were genuinely asking me permission for something.

D'awwww! I had to smother her in kisses after this because it was so pitiful and sweet!
Sorry about that, Darcie! I appreciate you asking permission before theoretically flying around the house and potentially breaking all the nice things that are out of your reach.
