After we ate lunch (NOT at Chuck E. Cheese's) we stopped at a nearby Half-Priced Bookstore. My son and I both needed to pee; he still usually goes with me into the women's restroom although he's not thrilled about doing so. Anyway, just as we started to enter the one-stall restroom, another lady walked in right in front of us. Not rudely or anything-- she just beat us to the door by a second. We stood there a minute and then I realized we might be waiting awhile. I told my son we would use the men's restroom instead. He immediately went into full blown, "What if someone sees us?" mode, like we were going to get arrested or something. Anyway, I had to take the photo below because I have never before seen this same set-up in a women's restroom:
My son and I browsed for a long time in the kid's section. Note one of the featured titles:
As we went to check out, I noticed this next book on display right in the front of the store:
Unrelated-- I'm taking my son with me to work tomorrow for part of the day. He loves going there. For the longest time he thought that the vending machine at my work was the only place you could get little chocolate covered doughnuts. Anyway, have you ever heard about the seven dirty words that you can never say on TV? Just google it if you haven't. Basically, we have to cover the kiddie version of those same words before my son can come to work with me. Otherwise he tells people things like, "My Mom poops in the tub!" He really did say that once. Of course, HE is the one who has actually has violated the bath water at least three times (when he was much younger; not anytime recently). Anyway, he's been warned of dire consequences if I hear ANY inappropriate words come out of his mouth tomorrow.
Lastly, speaking of inappropriateness, a couple of nights ago my son told me quite earnestly, "I like boobs." It's not the first time he's told me this. I think he wants me to be sure that I really and truly know where he stands on this subject. This time however I asked him, "Why do you like them?" and he said, "Because they're cool". There you have it-- a male's perspective on the female mammary glands. Consider yourself enlightened.
