Semantics

"Mom, can we watch a movie tonight?"

"Ummm. Yes, if you clean the bathrooms first. You two on this one, You two clean that one."
So off they go, cleaners, rags, brooms. Pretty soon I overhear one of the older boys ask the youngest brother, in a voice that clearly intimated baby bro was a hopeless imbecile: 
"What are you doing?!!!!!!
"Cleaning the toilet."
"Why? Mom didn't say clean the toilets, she said clean the bathrooms!"
