What we have here is a failure to communicate!

When my daughter decided to play T-ball, I was excited.  Being a sports-lover, I was excited to help her develop some skills so she would have a great experience.  We got her a glove and baseball, so I asked her if she wanted to go out in the front yard and "catch a few flies."  I wish I had a photograph of the look she gave me.  I was one part disbelief, one part confusion and one part disgust.  I didn't understand what I had said to get that kind of response until she asked me why we would want to catch flies.  That's when I realized she was talking about the insect version.  I realized she was going to need some help with a new vocabulary as well as some new skills.
