Mr M: Hi Dad. Thanks for the shoes you sent. You know those white ones?
Mr M: They make me run really fast.
Me: That's cool. I thought you might say that. Did you think that purple swoosh on the side was cool?
Mr M: What purple swoosh?
Me: The thing right on the side of the shoes.
Mr M: You mean that blue thing?
Me: It's not blue, it's purple.
Mr M: No it's not. It's blue.
Me: It's purple. Are we going to have to send you back to Kindergarten so you can learn your colors?
Mr M: I know my colors, Dad. It's blue.
Me: Ask your mom what color it is.
Mr M: Ok. Mom, what color is this?
My Ex: Purplish.
Mr M: See? They're blue.
It's like talking to a Creationist.
