Me: Do you want some dried cranberries?
Rooby: [blank look]
Me: Cranberry raisins.
Rooby: Yes! I mean no: I want plain cranberries.
Me: Plain cranberries? Like, not dried into raisins?
Me: Well, the thing about cranberries is that they taste better when they’re dried and sweetened; plain, they are very sour.
Rooby: [looks somewhere between skeptical and disappointed]
Me: I’m going into the kitchen. You let me know what you want.
[A couple minutes later, Rooby joins me in the kitchen.]
Rooby: Mom, I would like some dried cranberry raisins, because I hear you telling me that plain cranberries are very sour.
Me: Good choice.
