A giant exception

While Martina and I were watching TV, she saw a bigger-than-average guy and shouted, "That man is so fat!"

"Martina," I explained, "you shouldn't say that about people. It's not polite."

"But he has a big tummy."

"It's not nice to point it out, Marteens."

"But what if we see a giant? Can we say, (at this point, Martina raised her hands in the air, as though she was panicking) 'GIAAAANT!!!'?"

"Yes, Marteens, if we see a giant, we can say 'giant'."


As long as I got the message across.
