Scene: The fitting room at our local Target. Grant is trying on swim trunks. He found a pair he liked, but they didn’t fit.
Me: “Grant, these are too big for you. See? They don’t fit you in the waist. You need a smaller pair.”
Grant: “No, these fit. It’s OK.”
Me: “No, Honey, if you dive into the pool you might lose your shorts.”
Grant: “If I lose them, I will use my goggles and I will find them again.”

I will wait a few years to let him know that no shorts, plus cold pool water, can equal a perfect storm of embarrassment. Or so I’ve heard.
Wasn’t there a Seinfeld episode about this?
