Sometimes, when I feed my kids dinner, we are sitting outside in the glorious sunshine, right next to a drive-thru. (super-handy, sometimes healthy). During one recent dinner, The Boy and I were chatting it up next to the drive thru.
As usual, we were both listening to each other and listening to the orders. We are THAT talented. A woman drove thru and ordered a salad. She then ordered “2 thousand islands.”
The Boy asked, “Did you hear what she just ordered?”
I was stunned he understood that ordering 2 dressing was defeating the purpose of the salad. Then I asked, “you mean the 2 thousand islands?”
Then it hit me, “OH! The 2000 islands?? Like 2 thousand Hawaiis!!??”
And right then and there, I captured that wonderfully sweet, little moment inside the head of an 8 year old. A special somewhere I want to spend a lot more time before it disappears!!
