Me: Mom, don’t you like raisins?
Mom: Yes, I like raisins.
Me: Then why did you take all the raisins out of your cookies?
Mom: Those aren’t raisins.
Me: Yes, you have oatmeal raisin cookies. Those are the raisins.
Mom: Oh. I thought they were just junk.
Me: Why would they put junk in your cookies? They’re raisins!
Me: Mom! Why are you still taking the raisins out of your cookies?
Mom: What? I can’t hear you.
Me: WHY ARE YOU STILL TAKING THE RAISINS OUT OF YOUR COOKIES?
Mom: Because I don’t want them.
Me: Do you want me to buy you different cookies that don’t have raisins?
Mom: Do you want them?
Me: No, I want you to have cookies you like. Do you want me to buy different cookies?
Mom: No, these are fine.
