August 20th

Had to go shopping for birthday presents for my nieces.

Whose birthdays were over a week ago now.

So went to large, nearby shopping mall, and took Monkey Boy and Godzilla with me. Because, clearly, I am either insane or an idiot.

This was proved when I attempted to look in a ladies clothing shop. With two boys. What was I thinking?

A lovely (childless, 12 year old) sales assistant came over to us. “Can I help you with anything?”

“Sure. That would be great, thank you. Take these two with you while I have a look.”

The glare I received in response was really not called for. “Well, you asked!” I told her.

She then proceeded to tell me I’d miss them after 5 minutes. As I said, lovely.
