Metaphorically Speaking

Gavin:  "How about every time I talk to you, you respond to me metaphorically."

Me:  "What does that even mean, Gavin."

Gavin: "You know, I say something and then you respond using a metaphor."

Me:  "Oh.  Like, if you say 'corndog', then I say, 'you're as skinny as a corn dog'. Right?"

Gavin:  "No mom.  That's a simile.  You need you use a metaphor such as, 'this red is the sun'.

Me:   "Oh.  I don't know what to say.  How about I just don't talk."
