Watching The Hulk

So… I was sitting in the living room with my children and we’re watching The Hulk on tv.

My son looked at me and asked the quintessential question that is most important to every little boy who sees the hulk. “Mom, why is he wearing purple boxer shorts?”

I tried hard not to laugh, and instead I managed to say, “Because he’s the hulk! He’s always worn purple boxer shorts. I’ve never understood it myself.” And much like every little boy who has actually gotten an answer to that question, he shrugged his shoulders and went about watching the movie.

Sometimes, motherhood is a joy because of questions like that.

Why is this important? Well… because it was funny. *chuckle*
