Sunday we stopped by Costco to pick up a couple of things I’d forgotten on my trip there the day before. The kids had both just woken up from a nap so we all ventured in the store. The only stroller we had with us was the double, so we gave Caitlin a choice of the stroller or the shopping cart. She surprised us both by choosing the stroller. Everyone seemed happy.
As soon as we walked in she started fussing and asking for “special movie.” The Irishman and I had no idea what she was on about, so eventually I suggested they go look at the big TVs.
That was not what she wanted.
She was getting pretty insistent as we got to the check out.
It suddenly made sense.
They have a giant sign larger than Caitlin advertising the SMOOTHIES on the wall in front of the check out lane.
Turns out she wanted a SPECIAL SMOOTHIE. We won’t be making that mistake again!
