While at Target today, Relia got into a conversation with the check out lady. It used to be my goal to be the most interesting (in a positive way) customer that a check out person/restaurant server/retail salesperson would deal with in a given day. Now my kids have taken over that job. I mostly just smile, nod and try not to upstage them.
Relia: (deep in the conversation) And what's your name?
Target lady: (amused and enjoying herself) Nancy. And what is your name?
Nancy: Oh, what a pretty name.
Relia: I know. Everybody says that.
(laughs all around)
DF: And my name is Felix!
Me: Yeah, I don't really have shy kids...
