Aidan was telling me a line from one of his stories which ended in someone saying that a person has the personality of a eggplant. I laughed appropriately and after a moment I said well that’s not nice – insulting eggplants like that.
Aidan scowled at me. No – the insult was for the boy. You can’t insult an eggplant. Do you need me to explain it.?.? See an eggplant doesn’t, can’t have a personality.
Me: You’re right, I don’t know what I was thinking.
About five minutes later he was still chewing on it and finally he narrowed his eyes at me – Oh I see what you did there. That wasn’t even a little bit funny.
