Jason F. Wright’s column is always thought-provoking. In this one he describes overhearing a conversation between father and daughter in the next aisle at the grocery store. Intrigued, he finally pushes his cart around the corner to see who’s been talking. The outcome was the subject of his column.
I’ve experienced that, only I’ve been on the other side. I was shopping with my youngest son one day, and when he saw the latest Lego offering, he said, “Mother, that is absolutely maaaagnificent.” A curious shopper came around the corner and did a double-take when she saw the child who had uttered such big words. He was 2 ½ at the time.
