Like Taking Candy from a Baby

"Do you want this last piece of pizza for lunch tomorrow?" I asked Handsome the other night after dinner.

"Only if you don't want it."

"I can't take it from you.  I would be like taking candy from a baby!"

Handsome looked at me sideways, "I think you're using that phrase wrong."

"No, I'm not!"

"Yes, you are.  It means that it would be easy to take."

"Well, there are other meanings...  Like, it's mean to take candy from a baby.  Seriously.  So mean!  I couldn't take the last piece of pizza from you, because it would be mean... just like taking candy from a baby is mean."

Laughing, he accepts the last piece of pizza.
