"Bacon! I want bacon!" shouted Noah as he eyed the plate.
"Noah, you've already had two pieces of bacon. I think you need to eat something else, like a piece of fruit," I replied.
"No I didn't!" protested Noah. "I only had one." he insisted.
"Noah, you had one piece of bacon and then you had one piece of sausage and then you ate another piece of bacon." I explained.
"Yeah, that's what I said. I had one piece of bacon." said Noah
(I closed my eyes, took a deep breath and shuffled through my brain to figure out his logic)
"Noah, yes -- you are correct, you had one piece of bacon...at a time!" I shared.
