I want a bunny. And I can't have one, that makes me sad.
Sean says "not now, in a little while"
which is the same man translation used when you say
"Can you take the garbage out?"
and he says
"Sure - in a minute"
when that "minute" is actually an indefinite amount of time, possibly never?
yeah, that's what "a little while" means in this case.
BOO! Remind me to use that term when he wants Mercenaries 2 for the XBox in a few days.
