So when my son looks at a packing list and it says OLD clothes because "you will get dirty", he translates that to "go buy new but cheap clothes at Wal-Mart."
I tell him cheap clothes are not the same as old clothes because those cheap clothes I buy today will still be NEW. And all I buy him is CHEAP anyway because he grows so fast. He is not happy about that revelation.
Apparently I just don't understand.
