Word Choice

Me:  Guess what?  After dinner, you are going to take a bath!
Wyatt:  Aaaaahhhhoooo!
Ava:  Oh no, I hate taking a bath, taking a bath is bad. (rant rant rant)  Taking a bath is stupid!
Me:  Stupid and hate are strong words and you do not know how to use them properly yet.  What's wrong with taking a bath?
Wyatt:  (Ear piercing shriek, followed by a quick, sideways scuttle to avoid his sister's attempt to quiet him with a smack)
Ava:  Taking a bath is so bad.  It's just unpleasant.  And unpleasant is bad!

For the record:  She took a bath, and liked it!
