Using words despite their meanings


Little Miss wants to keep her newly cleaned teeth white and shiny!  She gets her toothbrush out and sorta, kinda brushes them.  Reminds me of air kisses.

I look at her. She looks back. Pauses, “I have to be very careful of my teeth.  They are fragile.”

Me:  Really, honey, teeth are VERY strong!  Like bones!

Her:  Strong?  Really?

Pauses again.

“Hey Mom, what does ‘fragile’ mean?”
