This morning I asked Molly if she had slept like a dog.

“I think the expression is 'slept like a log', daddy.” She said. “I don’t think you can use a simile to compare a thing to itself. Asking a dog if she slept like a dog is kinda like asking a cow if it gave milk like a cow, or a car if it drove like a car.”

“Good lord!” I was stunned. “When did you start considering the intricacies of English?”

“I ate a book called Word Power Made Easy.”

“Is that where that went.” I sighed. “Molly, please don’t eat my books.”
