Potato – Eggplant – it’s practically the same thing

A little conversation after we measured the boys’ heights today.

Me: Huh. H is about a half an inch taller than E when he was that age.

E: (panicked) Does that mean he’s taller than me?!?

Mark: Naw. That means your just about the same height.

E: It does?

Mark: Yeah. You know. Like me and Uncle Erik. We’re practically the same height.

Me: Really. Is that what you call a 2-inch height difference.

Mark: Well, that’s what *I* call it.
