I came back from feeding the ferals this morning and went to Longs before coming home. Long is a drug store, but with lots of stuff other than drugs.
I saw a mom and her son, probably 2-3 years old and listened to there conversation. The mom was very funny. We reconnected in the store and this is what I heard as they were walking from the frozen food section through the liquor isle. Verbatim. "Mom, I'd like some beer." Mom , "What!!!???" Mom. "Just because you can read the word doesn't mean you understand it! You can't have beer. We don't even drink beer." We came around the isles at the exact same time in absolute tears and laughter and just hugged one another. It was too funny. When I left home to go to college, I had a 6 year old sister and a 4 and 3 year old brother. They made me laugh every single day of my life. And when I left, that is what I missed most. The innocence and the laughter. I love kids. I love how pure and innocent they are. I love how they make me laugh louder than anyone else.
