On Saturday Benjamin did one of the funniest things I have seen in a long, long time. We went to Fred Segal (for those not in the know, it is a trendy collection of super high-end boutiques where stars and beautiful people shop and hang out.) It is their annual 50% off sale, so folks like us can just about to afford some of the clothes if we really really want them. Jonathan was in the dressing room trying on cool surf trunks and shirts and I came across a pair of super cute hamburger boxers--red, with colorful hamburgers all over them -- and I pulled them out and said, "Try them on!")
They were XL, and far too much to pay for a pair of skivvies, but Benji fell in love with them. Jonathan darted out to find a different size in something and when he opened the dressing room door there was Benji, shoes off, pants off, underwear off, trying to get his legs into the XL hamburger underwear.
We started laughing hysterically. When we told him they were the wrong size (he could have fit one of himself in a leg) he burst into tears. He was devastated. And, alas, there were no hamburger underwear in the children's section. Though we did see Seal...
