Simply Can't Find Good Kitchen Help Lately

Scene: Kitchen - Izzy seated at table, me at the stove, getting ready to serve the pasta.

Izzy: I'm hungry. When's dinner?

Me: Soon. Why don't you clean up your papers from the table so we can sit down and eat?

Izzy: I am not a cleaner. I am an eater.

I chuckled at that response, thinking it to be quite clever but my grandfather thought otherwise. He said he thought Izzy was being fresh yet he couldn't suppress a chortle himself. And I had to think, "Fresh?" Nah..simply amusing.
