Lesson #1 in semantics

Oh the finer mechanics of the English language.

Lesson #1 sounded like this:
Chris: Abishai, sometimes you remind me of a little dog cause you rest your head on my leg.
Alyssa: Abs, you are stinking cute.
Bells: Abs, you're a stinking dog.


How do you explain to a four year old that that wasn't a very nice thing to say. "But you said he was stinking and Dad said he was a dog?" Well sort of...

Oh the fine and subtle meanings of language usage.
