Me: You owe me. I've gone to Summerfest with you [and put up with obnoxious crowds and horrible and loud music] and we spent an hour arguing about politics today.
SH: What do you mean?
Me: Now you have to do something for me. I want you to paint the porch tomorrow.
SH: Paint the porch? What are you talking about?
Me: Don't give me that! We've been talking about this for weeks! You know exactly what I'm talking about!
SH: No, I don't! We have never talked about painting the porch.
Me: The balcony! Staining and sealing the balcony!
SH: That's not painting the porch.
Me: It is the same class of things! Porch and balcony are both things that protrude from the house and do not have a roof. Painting and sealing involve the same action using a paintbrush.
SH: But you said "paint the porch" and that is not the same as "seal the balcony."
Me: Are you deliberately trying to make me mad?
SH: I am very precise.
Me: Oh good grief. Can't you think in concepts for a change?
