After a long day of hard work, the Santos clan relaxed at the dinner table with some comforting meatball soup.
Noah lifted his spoon to his mouth. He asked, "Does anyone know what 'injured' means?" then slurped his broth loudly.
Sophia blurted out "Yeah, it means 'hurt'".
Naomi echoed, "Yeah, it means you got an owie."
Noah replied, "Nope." He took a bite of meatball. All eyes were fixed on him as we waited for his definition. Confidently, he shared, "It means 'knocked down by a missile.'"
