Apparently this afternoon, there were no clean small spoons in the silverware drawer when Vince went to get one.
Later, while he was outside, I unpacked the dishwasher and began putting the dirty dishes in, but I didn’t realize he had needed a spoon and there were none in the drawer.
After dinner . .
Vince: Are the dishes in the dishwasher clean?
Vince: Did you know there are no clean spoons in the drawer?
Me: There are! I just unpacked the dishwasher.
Vince: I just asked you if you unpacked the dishwasher and you said NO!
Me: No, you asked me if the dishes in the dishwasher were clean.
Vince: You knew what I meant!
Oh really? Did I?
Me: I only know what you said.
Vince: OK . . two can play that game.
That makes me hopeful that he is going to begin speaking my language!
