Wherein the Mother Disappears Behind the Display of Laundry Detergent …

We are in Target, moving slowly down a quiet aisle that has only one other shopper.

“Mommy, that lady has PINK hair!”

So she does. Neon pink and black highlights to be specific.

“Why does that lady have PINK hair?”

“I don’t know, honey … ”  and since the woman can clearly hear us talking, I add, “maybe because it looks pretty?”

“No … it DOESN’T look pretty …”

Next stop? The mommy-that-lady’s-got-a-baby-in-her-tummy line … about someone who is simply carrying a bit too much weight. Don’t imagine we have much chance of avoiding that one.

    Either teach Tau to whisper, or learn not to blush!

  2. Reply in Spanish??
