If Red is the New Black...then

William ate mashed potatoes for supper last night. They are one of the few things he'll eat. Having a food texture disorder makes cooking difficult. I read the local paper while he ate and he said:

"Sherrie, what does it mean when something says 'Red is the new black?'"

I had to think for a moment about how to explain this concept. "Well, Black is a popular color that a lot of people wear."

He interrupted, "Like Professor Snape. He wears black all the time."

"Zackly so. But if he started wearing red, it would be the new black for him."

"So red isn't black, it's just a color people have instead of black?"

"Sort of...yeah."

"Can Mashed Potatoes be the new Tuna Salad?"
