Me: We have to get you some new long johns for soccer.
MonkeyGirl: Why do they have to call them long johns? Why not soccer pants?
Me: Actually, there was this heavyweight boxer named John Sullivan. All the other boxers wore shorts, but he wore long pants, so they called them long johns…
MonkeyGirl: I didn’t want to hear the story, Mom. I just want you to call them soccer pants.
