Figures of Speech

Miles and Vivienne are just starting to pick up on figures of speech.  For example, I said something about "running errands" a month or so ago.  Vivienne asked me when we were going to start running.  Last week, I mentioned something about how they had "worn" a toy "out".  Vivienne said, "We don't wear that!" 

It's interesting to see how literally they take something that I say to them.  This is just the another step in learning all the many nuances to the English language.
