Coming downstairs in the morning and finding a shredded newspaper in the lounge:
Me: akira, what is this??
Akira looks around the room: What is what?
Me pointing at the newspaper: What is THIS?
Akira: Oh that? Do you like what I have done with the look of the room?
Me: No! I like seeing the floor and I also like reading the paper before it is shredded.
Akira, wagging her tail excitedly: But do you like what I have done? I worked so hard on it?
Me: No! For goodness sake, I have told you over and over that paper in not for eating it is for reading!
Akira: Huh? Reading? I was going to make a paper mache cat to eat later, just for fun.
Me: Do you understand that paper mache is creating a new thing, not destroying it?
Me: Look just stop shredding things ok?
Akira: Can you google ‘Making cat animals out of chewed up sunglasses’ for me please??
