You know that person at Costco who checks your cart before you leave in case you’re trying to sneak out with 500 rolls of toilet paper? The same one who draws a smiley face on the back of your receipt if you have children with you?
My children know that person (we live in suburbia, after all). You should’ve seen their faces today as they watched her scribble. Such anticipation. Such delight when they saw she’d drawn not one but TWO smiley faces. A GIRL AND A BOY!
