I was WONDERING why they called her that

Thursday night. Seamus in the bathtub. Me sitting on the (closed) toilet seat.

SEAMUS: Mommy, you have a vagina.
MOMMY: You’re right, I do.
SEAMUS: And it’s named after a color.

Pause.

MOMMY: What?
SEAMUS: (quite sure of himself) And it’s named after a color.
MOMMY: It is?
SEAMUS: Mm-hmm.
MOMMY: …Which one?

Pause.

SEAMUS: Blue’s fwiend.

Pause.

MOMMY: Blue from Blue’s Clues?
SEAMUS: Mm-hmm.

Pause.

MOMMY: Seamus, Blue’s friend’s name is Magenta.
SEAMUS: Oh.

Pause.

SEAMUS: I fought it was Vagina.
