It's A Valid Question
What's your favorite team? What's your least favorite team? These are the questions you have to answer before you start buying branded diapers.
"It's an important question, Michelle!"
Tim wiped his brow. Stared at the MLB Disposable diapers.
"It's not this hard, Tim." Michelle was leaning over the shopping cart, staring. "Just choose a diaper and let's go."
"You don't understand then, Michelle. Todd would understand. I should have married your brother instead of you."
Michelle didn't respond, except for letting out a low sigh. "I'm starting to agree with you. Maybe we could talk to a lawyer and work something out."
"I don't have time to think about legal issues, Michelle. I have to make a decision."
"They're all the same, Todd!" Michelle threw up her hands. "All of these diapers are highly absorbent, hook-and-loop design, able to fit boys and girls comfortably, and there's NO difference between them."
Tim turned very slowly to face his wife, with a look she'd never seen before.
"Michelle," he started slowly. "Never tell your husband there's no difference between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox."
Michelle had no answer. Todd went on.
"The problem isn't the diaper. The problem is the brand. Don't you see? Don't you see how this is killing me? Michelle, what do I do? Do I buy my team, and let my baby dress to show her support? Or do I buy the opposing team and let them see how their logo is only fit to store my child's waste? I don't know, Michelle! I don't know what to do!"
Todd fell to his knees, beginning to weep. Michelle quietly rolled the cart toward the check-out lane. Maybe, she thought, I can make it to the parking lot before he notices.
