But with Megan off swimming at a friend's house, Amanda asked if she could go with me. I tried to deter her by listing the many places I needed to go, but she just shrugged and said she'd go get ready.
One of our errands was to purchase new t-shirts for Henry. So after the first 2 stops ...
Amanda: Where are we going now?
Me: To buy t-shirts for Dad.
Amanda: Will we get to go on the escalator?
Me: Yes. Unless they've changed things, men's clothing is on the 2nd floor.
We arrive and walk into the store. A store I haven't been to in at least 6-8 months, because it's at THE MALL, and I absolutely hate shopping at THE MALL.
As soon as we were in, I noticed a rack full of shirts for $5.
Me: Hold on, Amanda. These are only $5, let me take a quick look.
Amanda: I thought we were shopping for DAD.
Me: We are.
So I scanned that rack, and the sales rack next to that, and found 2 shirts I wanted to try on.
Me: Do you see the fitting room anywhere?
Amanda: No, but why are you trying those on when we're shopping for DAD?
Me: Because they're only $5.
We found the fitting room. I tried them on, and was disappointed. So we headed for the escalator, only to find a couple more tops on the way that might work for me.
Me: I'm gonna' try these on real quick, and then we'll head upstairs.
Amanda: And THEN we'll shop for DAD like you SAID we were going to?
Me: Amanda, we ARE shopping for Dad.
Why is this such a hard concept to understand?!
