You might be noticing a theme this week. The Family honored the American Worker this Labor Day by consuming conspicuously. Okay, so it wasn’t truly conspicuous, but we did run some errands, buy some stuff, and replace our classic 1996 Accord. Fine, so it wasn’t classic: it was old. I loved it regardless.
Which is all to say that The Kidling spent a rather long day shopping with me. As we were leaving our local shopping mecca (otherwise known as a mall), it occurred to me that the little Sigg water bottles we were looking for just might be in the one store we didn’t check. So I asked Alice what she thought about checking out one last store. She considered my proposal before responding…
Okay. One more. We’ve been shopping too long. The sun is going down! We would be shopping all night and into the morning and then we’d be nocturnal and we’d be saying ‘Hi!’ to owls and bats. Are bats real?
After assuring Alice that bats are, in fact, real, I decided her logic seemed sound. We stuck to the one additional store. And you know what? They didn’t have the water bottles.
