Lost in translation

This morning, Ellie popped her head into the bathroom while I was taking a shower and asked my favorite color.
"I like all colors," I replied. Her displeased expression made me add, "But I often choose blue because I really like blue."
"Well, I'm going to choose pink for you because girls like pink."
I nodded my assent, and she returned to the kitchen, where I heard her announce, "She said, 'Pink'!"
Now I know how the press works.
