Female communication

In our house recently, a discussion about our eight-year-old and her best friend:
Q: What is the age difference between X and Y?
A: Six months.
Q: Older or younger?
A: Older.
Q: X or Y?
A: Y.
I pointed out to A that she could have answered Q’s first question with “Y is six months older than X,” but apparently that missed the point about female communication which is to keep talking.
