...go a little something like this sometimes:
Me: We're going to go vote for the next president now.
Jon: We're going in a boat?
Me: No, we're going to vote--vvvvote, with a v--for the next president.
Jon: Oh, presents! I like presents!
Me: No, not presents, preSIDENT--that's the person who runs our country
Jon: oh, so no boat and no presents?
Me: No, and we're probably going to have to wait in a line.
Jon: Lion? There are lions there?
Me: No, not lions, LINE--like at the grocery store.
