Crying before spilled milk

I had another bonding experience with Alice at dinner recently. She asked for a glass of milk which I poured and brought over to the table. I tried to set it down and Alice insisted on grabbing it. Given Alice’s history of spilling I wanted to be sure it was on the table but Alice refused to let me put it there. I wanted to discourage Alice’s typically premptory manner so I took the milk back. I was also seriously concerned that if I put it down while Alice was whining she would simply knock it over in a fury (she will still frequently just throw things on the floor at dinner if she is sufficiently displeased). I just left it in the kitch and Alice eventually retrieved it on her own, not without spilling some on the counter.
