Figurative or literal?

One day my youngest daughter said that she was pretty grown up for her age. After all, (as she told me) she has an extensive vocabulary and knows the difference between figurative and literal. Because if something literally happens, it happens, well..... literally.

So she was pretty cute the other day:

She had dropped something and was concerned that it was a big deal and that I might get angry. I said, "Don't worry, honey. It's not the end of the world." She replies, "No, not like the sun exploding. Now that would be the end of the world!"
