Say What? Time out

My 11 year old daughter had been trying to visit different friends today but came back home when she found out they couldn't play.  Her deadline to be home was 4 p.m.  On Saturdays we have to get the kids through baths/showers so they can be clean for Sunday services.

I was in the middle of rotating cookies out of the oven when I heard her exclaim, "Is it literally 2:44?"

I looked at the clock and then turned to her with a straight face and said, "No, it's only symbolically 2:44."

I got the standard, annoyed sounding, "Mom!"
