Did I mention it was hot?
|At this point he was still trying to figure out where the heck he was and what the heck those furry "people" were doing on that jungle gym. Chimpanzees are cool.|
|He was pretty much captivated by the elephants. He stared. Then kicked and grunted. Then clapped. That's high praise coming from Sammy.|
|We took 16 pictures next to this little elephant sculpture. This is the only one where both people in the picture are looking at the camera.|
|Mommy was sweaty. Sammy was tired. But there was a waterfall. And there was a tree. So we stayed here for awhile.|
Second...(did you forget there were two things?)...we stopped at Sprouts on the way home so I could get some corn and sausage to make this.
He was hopin' and prayin'.
Not gonna happen, my friend.
Anyway, I was standing at the meat counter waiting on some help, and a young kid finally made his way over. He looked like he was about 19. Here's what happened:
Him: "Yes m'am?"
Me: "Can I please have two links of the pork andouille sausage?"
Him: "No m'am. I'm sorry. Those are reserved."
Me (I'm almost certain he's kidding): "Reserved? <he nods> Reserved for who?"
Him: "Reserved for me. I like sausage."
Me: "Well, I'm pretty sure you could spare two links for me, couldn't you?"
Him: "I guess I could. <starts to pick them up...pauses> Are you sure you just want two?"
Me: "Yep. That's all I need."
Him: "You SURE?! You know you're gonna get home and want some more?"
Me: "Nope. Two will work just fine."
Him: "Well when you figure out you need more you'll just have to come back and see me."
Me (is he FLIRTING with me?!): "I'm sure we'll be fine with two. One for me. One for my husband."
Him: "Your HUSBAND?!"
Me: "Yep. I have one."
Him: "But you don't have a ring."
Me: "That's because I had a baby and my fingers are still too fat to wear it."
Him: "A BABY?!?!?!"
Me: "Yep. A nine-month-old."
Him: "How long have you been married?"
Me: "It'll be nine years next month."
Him: "NINE YEARS?!?!? How old are you?"
Me: "32. How old did you think I was?"
Him: "Geez. I was thinking 25ish. Man!"
Me: "Well, better luck next time!"
I gave him a wink and a smile and walked out of that store on Cloud Nine. He may have been delusional and a little goofy looking, but I'm okay with that.
