Adam and I were in Target shopping for groceries and whatnot. We were just doing our thing zipping in and out of aisles when we heard this melancholic pathetic moan-cry coming from a little ways away.
“Someone’s sad,” I cheerfully noted, thanking myself that it wasn’t Adam doing the crying (haha).
When I listened closer to the dying-beast-like sound coming out of this little girl’s mouth, I heard her crying, and crying, and crying for….cookies.
They must have been really good cookies or she must have been really hungry. Or maybe she was just a brat. Or just cranky. Whatever. It was ridiculous and that’s why I loved it. Of all things in her little life that she could be sad and crying about, the worst thing she had going for her is that she really, really wanted some cookies and momma wasn’t into that.
Adam said that he would have been that little girl when he was a little boy…sounds weird but you get what I mean. I was both shocked and appalled that Adam would have been a tantrum child, knowing fully that I may have been the queen of pouting/tantruming
now when I was little – it takes one to know one, but I had no idea about Adam. I would have thought Adam to be the kid who just sneakily puts the cookies in the basket when his mom wasn’t looking. (Upon just reading this to Adam he corrected my misguided image of him…he said he would have probably done both, haha)
See, you learn something new about the people you love all the time.
I just hope that if we have kids they don’t get both our tantruming genes or else we are in for a treat…
P.S. Happy Vernal Equinox yesterday at 7:21pm EDT! For those of you not aware, this is the time where the day is just about equal parts sun and dark because the Sun crosses the equator….for those of us in the northern hemisphere that means spring and more daylight coming our way! Suck it, winter!
