This morning we passed a few hours at TJ Maxx, mostly looking at clutter. Henry and I were occasionally separated, but always managed to find each other using our own special brand of echolocation. After one little separation, Henry came running up to me, hanger in hand, a mysterious garment flowing behind him.
"Mom, Mom!" he called out excitedly, "I found this dress and I want to buy it for you. Wouldn't this be so pretty for church?" he asked, holding it up for my perusal.
I glanced down for a look, and I'll bedanged if he wasn't holding the skimpiest little...I don't even know what to call it...teddy (?) negligee (?), nightie (?) -- you know the type -- sheer, black lace, ruffles aplenty and panties to match. Oh! I was doubled over in laughter. And cute little Henry, not finding the humor in the situation, pressed on, "Do you wanna buy it?"
Needless to say, I reshelved the li'l number, and we were on our way. But oh my...did that bring a chuckle. Still does.
Also, if anybody's interested in a little political mind-snack, here you go. (Helpful to me in shedding some light on the bailout proposals).
And this, too -- I know that second article comes off anti-democrat, which I'm not trying to propogate (at all), but the issues raised are worth considering. I know I don't understand a lot of what's going on, but some things come down to simple economics, and I don't understand how a predicament we got ourselves into with too much spending can be fixed with ... more spending, esp on programs that won't generate economic growth. I'm liking Ron Paul more and more all the time.
