Lil Sis made this request:
"I want my Christmas Socks."
I gave her her Christmas Slippers
She then made the following discoveries with quite long pauses between each sentence:
"Hey. These are not my Christmas Socks."
"These are not Socks."
"These are Slippers!"
"These are my Christmas Slippers!"
My response: "Oh, well, when you said you wanted your Christmas Socks, I thought you meant Christmas Slippers, so that's why I gave you your Christmas Slippers. I'm sorry."
