Tales from the fitting room
I overheard this conversation between a mother and her 8 or 9 year old son in a fitting room this week. It’s classic!
Mother: “Oh, I just love it on you! It’s so cute! Just so cute!”
Son: “I don’t really like it mom. The other one is better.”
Mother: “Ohhh, but this one is just so cute. I want you to wear it. It’s cute, cute, cute!”
Son: “Mom, I said I don’t want it.”
Mother: “Yeah, but it’s red and it’s cute on you!”
Son: “Mom. I don’t want to look cute, okay!?”
Mother after a moment: “Alright. (sigh) Well then I think you look like you could kick somebody’s ass in it! (pause) and you look really cute.”
I think he got the shirt he wanted.
