Naomi's take on things

Naomi: What's this piece of paper?

Me: A receipt

Naomi: What's a receipt?

Me: A piece of paper the store gives you after you buy something.

Naomi: That's silly! Stores don't have hands! (pause) Mom? What's a receipt really?

That's hilarious! It's so hard to explain some things. Levi asked me yesterday what an "alias" is. (I guess he heard it in connectin with Spiderman or Mr. Incredible.) That was a very tricky conversation.

I think it's great how she took you literally. She's right--the STORE can't give it to you. It's not quite literal.
