On a walk recently, my 4.5 yr old stumbled and hurt herself slightly. She, however, did NOT consider it a slight  injury since she described it to me as being as painful as "40 pieces of candy".
Me: "You mean it hurts as much as eating 40 pieces of candy?"
Daughter: "Yes. Eating 40 pieces of candy would hurt, right?"
Me: "Yes, I think it would."
Daughter: "Oh, ok, that's how much it hurts."

Of course, she's never eaten 40 pieces of candy in one sitting. But when we told my husband about it he teased her by asking how she remembers what it feels like more than a week after visiting Grandma and Grandpa. I'm glad that even grandparent indulgences aren't that excessive in our family.
