This is how the conversation went:
Me: Did you wash the basil, too?
Primo: No. Just the tomatoes.
Me: Why didn't you wash the basil?
Primo: Because you only asked me to wash the tomatoes.
Me: But the basil is for your salad. I brought in the tomatoes then went out to the garden to get the basil and then I put the basil next to the tomatoes and you didn't think to wash the basil, too?
Primo: You only asked me to wash the tomatoes!
