Literalism: A Conversation With Luke

After asking Luke to bring his dinner dishes into the kitchen….

  • Me: Luke, where is your glass?
  • Luke (looking confused): My glass?
  • Me: Yes, your water glass from dinner. Where is it?
  • Luke (still confused): I didn’t have a water glass.
  • Me: Yes, you did, you were drinking water.

[Luke goes into the dining room and returns]

  • Luke: You mean this?
  • Me (exasperated): Yes. Isn’t that the glass you were drinking water from?
  • Luke: Mommy, this isn’t a glass, it’s a plastic.
