I need a checklist of figures of speech Kelly is familiar with. This evening, I was helping her after her shower.
"Where's your hairbrush?"
"It's probably in the bathroom."
"So go get it," I replied.
"I'm wet and cold, and I just got out of the shower, and I had dance class tonight... So could you please look for it?"
I'm hardly the sympathetic type when confronted with a pathetic list like that, so I answered: "I will go look for it, but do you know what this is?" I held up my thumb and forefinger, rubbing delicately together.
"It's the world's tiniest violin, playing just for you."
To which Kelly replied: "Yay!"
