Helping Fainjin get dressed this morning, I gave him the option: “Blue socks, or red socks?”
He pondered for a moment, then said, “Red socks!”
I saw he was already wearing red underwear, so I said, “Ok, then they’ll match your undies.”
“Hmm,” he said, “They’re similar…”
Apparently the black lettering on the waistband is enough for the socks not to be quite matching, and to inspire him into 3-syllable words.
