“Do you have these cups?  Everyone I know has these cups…I can’t help from paying attention to which color I’m giving to the kids.  I know, I know, I’m not supposed to teach them that color matters, and I’m just supposed to grab the two cups from the top of the pile and put them on the table without thinking about it.  But I don’t. 

Because do you know what happens when I put the pink cup down in front of my son?  A shitstorm of monumental proportions.  And I can try to reason with him and tell him color doesn’t matter, but by this point he’s wailing and past the point of no return and he’d rather die of thirst.”
