Wearing Pink

Susan Notes:

"Metropolitan Diary," which appears every Monday in the New York Times, is my favorite part of the paper. Here's one item from today's paper.

Dear Diary:

One sunny day last fall I was in the playground with my 3-year-old son. Ezra, as usual, was wearing his hot pink sandals. A boy, slightly older, came over with a curious look.

"Why is he wearing pink sandals?" the boy asked.

"Well," I said, "pink is his favorite color."

"But pink is for girls," the boy replied.

"If he's a boy and he likes pink, pink must be for boys and girls," I said.

The boy hesitated and leaned in closer. Quietly, he said "Pink is my favorite color, too." And off he went.
