This morning I was helping our four-year-old daughter, A, get dressed. She decided to wear a "skort", that strange piece of clothing that is both a skirt and a pair of shorts. Is it a pair of skorts? Or just a skort? I don't know. Anyway, here's what A said to me this morning:
A: See, Dad, the front is a skirt, but in the back it's shorts! It's a skort!
Me: Why do they make it that way?
A: They make it that way to confuse you.
