Can't Argue With That

Tonight before dinner Avery asked me for some Kool-Aid.  

Me:  No, no Kool-Aid at dinner.  Lunch time only
Her:  Awww.  Can I have some milk?
Me:  Is there anything else you'd like to add to that?
Her:  No thank you.

Talk about your all-time backfires.  In my attempt to elicit some manners from her, I fell victim to the ultimate double entendre.  What I wanted was "Can I have some milk please?"  Oblivious to that implication, she came back with quite possibly the only response that I couldn't be upset with.  Perfect manners in response to the other meaning of the question I asked.  What can you do but laugh?
