Rethinking the Whole Reading Thing


DSC01581Typical trip to the grocery store for Roslyn and the Notorious L.U.K.E.:

Him: Mama, it says on the label, “No Trans Fats”.

Me: That doesn’t compensate for the 500 grams of sugar they pour in there. 

Him: (Studying label with a frown): It doesn’t have 500 grams of sugar, it has 50.

Me: *sigh*

Clearly the literary form known as hyperbole is wasted on five-year-olds.
