I am very small

“I am very small. I can’t eat this”, said the three-year old handing me a piece of idli.
“And what is the connection between your size, and not finishing dinner”, I asked.
“I am very small! How can I fit such a big piece in my small mouth?”

Less than half an hour later, he got into a convoluted argument with me.
“When that tiny piece of idli doesn’t fit into your mouth, how are you able to store so many big words there?”, I asked.
For perhaps the first time in his life, he did not have an answer.
