My son is a very picky eater and very literally minded. We were having something for dinner that he didn't like and started arguing with me about having to eat it. I told him to stop arguing with me and to "drop it". He had been holding his plate at the time and he did exactly what I told him to do. He dropped his plate. The food went all over the floor. Since there wasn't any more, it was just leftovers, he ended up eating something else entirely. I didn't know if I was going to laugh or cry.
