Just so you all get it straight:
This stretches the truth.
This could really happen.
CONNOR: Here’s my homework, Mom.
I review the drawings.
MOMMY: Hmm. So… a guy can’t grab a snake. But he can catch a whale? That could really happen?
Connor sighs heavily.
CONNOR: NO. Of course he can catch a snake. But he can’t use it as a lasso to catch that bull. That couldn’t really happen.
MOMMY: Well, no. I guess not. But then if he went fishing, he could catch a fish that big? That could really happen?
CONNOR: He would catch it. But then, see, the arrow means he would fall right in the water. That’s what would really happen.
