This evening my son had brought home a package of cookies from the store where he works. He ate a couple of them and attempted to package the rest in a ziplock bag. All but one fit. He said, “I guess I’ll just eat it.” I jokingly said, “That’s a convenient excuse to eat another one.” He held the bag up and seriously pointed out that it wouldn’t fit. I chuckled and said, “I’m just giving you a hard time.” He said, “Why? I don’t understand why you would do that?” I replied, “I was joking with you.” He says, “But you said you were giving me a hard time. Why do you think it’s funny to make me feel uncomfortable? I don’t get that.” This was a lightbulb moment for me as it highlighted just how literal he is in his thinking.
