The best moment of my day

At lunch time, this second grade kid saw my polo shirt and, looking at me incredulously, asked the all-too-familiar question, "Why are you wearing a pink shirt?"

Here it comes, I thought. Still, wanting to do my part to debunk the rather absurd gender/color stereotype, I offered my stock response: "Because I like pink and besides--I look good in this shirt."

To which he grinned and one-upped me: "I like hot pink."

Made my day.
