Ben came from a large family. He had five sisters and three brothers.
One day he was looking through the family photo album with his mother when he noticed, in page after page, that all the children were dressed in the same colors.
He asked his mother why they were all dressed alike.
She explained, “At first, when we had just four children, I dressed you alike so we wouldn’t lose any of you. “Then,” she added, “as other five came along, I started dressing you alike so we wouldn’t accidentally take one home that didn’t belong to us.”
