The Boston Blueberries

For my son’s fourth birthday, a friend gave him this hat:

Yesterday he and I were paying for our produce at the farm stand when the woman in line behind us said, “Hey! What does the ‘B’ on your hat stand for?”

My son—who has not yet learned to be annoyed when adults ask him questions to which they already know the answer—replied, “Blueberries!”

Ah, yes! I remember when the Boston Blueberries won the World Series in 2004! What a game that was!

This explains why he was adamant about wearing his new “B” hat when we went blueberry picking for his birthday.
