Ben's BFF

My sister Tammy called me the other day to tell me about a funny conversation she'd had with my nephew, Ben.  They had spent the afternoon at a home-school function where Ben had been running around playing with some kids he hadn't met before.  At one point, he ran up to Tammy, breathless and looking for someone.  That's when they had this conversation:

Ben: Hey, Mommy.  I'm looking for my BFF - have you seen him?
Tammy: [confused] Your BFF?
Ben: Yeah.  We were just playing and then he left to go potty but now I can't find him.
Tammy: Oh.  Well, what's his name?
Ben:  I don't know.
Tammy: You don't know his name?  I thought he was your BFF!
Ben: He is.  [spotting the BFF] THERE HE IS!
[runs over to his friend]
Ben to BFF: Hey, BFF!  I've been looking for you! [running off to play together]

Oh to be young again . . .
