Conversation between Man-Child (14 and 6'3") and 7 year old brother (very tall, but a wee boy):
14 - Dude, Pull your pants (shorts) down.
7 - Why? What's wrong?
14 - You look like a dork. They're not supposed to be up around your armpits.
7 - And your's aren't supposed to be under your butt. Dude - Pull YOUR pants UP.
14 - But you're not supposed to see your knees.
(At which point I want to rush in and point out that every mother wants to see her little boy's knees in shorts for as long as she possibly can.)
7 - The world isn't supposed to see your boxers either.
14 - Mom- tell him he looks stupid. His shorts are pulled up way too high.
7 - Mom - tell him no one wants to see his boxers.
ME - OK, that's enough. Both of you, I want to see your shorts where they should be.
(Neither of them change the arrangement of their shorts, but the threat of mom interfering with their appearance is enough to stop the arguing.)
Oy, oy, oy.
