When I picked the girls up from martial arts, I told them that I had gotten them a little present. They watched as I reached into my shopping bag and handed them their identical gifts. I was rather startled when they started to profusely thank me. I had been expecting something more along the lines of rolling their eyes. (They’ve both gotten really good at that).
Then they started enthusiastically asking me if they could decorate their new item. “Can I glue rhinestones on it?” asked one. “Oh, can I paint mine pink?” “I can make this so cute!”
I had to look at them closely to make sure that they weren’t messing with me. To my amazement, they were serious.
“You do know what those are, don’t you?” I had to ask.
“Yes!” They both replied eagerly “They’re new kitty litter scoopers!”
Then one of them must have realized how inane they sounded as she all of a sudden looked at me and said “Don’t you dare put this on the blog!”
I just laughed.
