I’m adding “Are they all yours?” to my Annoying Things People Say list. I’m actually quite surprised it wasn’t on there. It is something I’m asked quite often, but I don’t think I’ve ever gotten through a grocery shopping trip with the kids at Walmart without someone asking me. So the other day in mental preparation for the trip I posted on Facebook, “Headed to Walmart today. Where is my, “Yes, they are all mine” T-Shirt?”
had our own “The people of Walmart” moments,
and then sat down in the McDonald’s to eat a quick lunch and take advantage of the Monopoly game. That’s when I realized that no one had asked the question. No one. Wow. As we stood up to throw away the remains of our lunch, I thought, “Am I really going to make it out of Walmart without one person asking me if they are all mine?” One split second after that thought went through my mind, as we were leaving the McDonalds the woman sitting at the table nearest the door asked, “They all yours?” I burst out laughing. “Yes! Ha ha ha! They are!” and I laughed all the way to the van. Could it have been more perfect?
