Overheard loud and clear through a wall at the thrift store

Child, practically crying: "Mommmm, when you tell me that if I don't wear sunscreen I'm going to get skin cancer and die, don't you think that's a little harsh?? That scares me!"

Mother: "Well, it doesn't seem like it scares you, because you never wear it."


Did I buy anything at the thrift store, you ask? Yes, I did. Trivial Pursuit, 20th anniversary edition. I have yet to discover if it has all the pieces and if I know the answers to any of the questions.

Still no crocheted purses? Whatever shall we do?

Haha...I love the juxtaposition of the threatening mom and Trivial Pursuit. That mom's threat was very clever, by the way. Too bad her kid didn't buy it.

I introduced Adam to your blog last night. He read the last 20 posts or so and laughed his brains out.

I thought you were going to say you bought sunscreen.

Ooooohhhh! Trivial Pursuit is Boyd and my favorite game! We will have to have a little competition when we see you and Seth next.
