TT: What’s your favorite kind of dinosaur?

CLD: Purple.

TT: So does that mean your daughter is a Barney fan?

CLD: I don’t think she knows what Barney is, but purple is her favorite color. So [for] everything, if you ask her what her favorite whatever it is, like, “What’s your favorite meal?” Purple. And if I said, “What song do you want to sing?” Purple.
