Comprehension issues

Background: Thomas and I are in the kitchen, along with all 5 of the larger parrots. Max is on the counter. Stella is on the ground. The caiques are on stands. Rocky is on the table.

Me: Are you OK with her eating your mail?

Thomas: Sure. What? Nail?

Me: Mail

Thomas: Nail

Me: Mail

Thomas: Yes, she's eating my nail

Me: Mail

Finally, I stopped this conversation as it was apparent Thomas was talking about Stella preening his feet and I was talking about Max chewing on envelopes. Rhyming destruction!
