My Mom: "Why?"
Me: "Reindeer don't have paws."
My Mom: "What?"
Me: "They have hooves. Everyone knows that."
My Mom: *blinks* "Oh! It's pause."
My Mom: "In the song, they say pause. It sounds the same but means something different. P-A-U-S-E. It means to stop."
Me: "That's dumb."
My Mom: "Well, yes, but that's how it is. Some words sound the same but mean different things."
Me: *blinks* "Oh. Well, at least the song makes sense now."
