A month or so before Rachel's second birthday she and I were watching Sesame Street one morning. For the first few minutes of the show the transmission was screwed up and the colors were all wrong...green kids running on purple grass...orange sky.... And then there was a close-up of a little boy and he was all blue. "Look!" I said, "that kid's all blue! Why do you supposed he's blue?"
And Rachel looked at me and said, "Because he's a boy!"
Poor dumb mother.
