A conversation with an engineer

I overheard a conversation that Ellie had with Jason. He was trying to help her finish her dinner so they could make cookies together.

Jason: Only girls who are happy and have finished their dinner are eligible to help make cookies.
Ellie: What does eligible mean?
Jason: It means you are qualified.
Ellie: What does qualified mean?
Jason: It means you have met all the requirements.
Ellie: What are requirements?
Jason: It means you've met all the criteria.

She stopped asking questions after that.


  1. That is so funny. I have done that with Brooklynn I say something that she just doesn't understand and there are no more questions.
