Yesterday we were in Walmart and it was so funny the things people say.
The Plum Conversation:
We were in produce and Addie said “Oh, plums!” I told her she could get some if she wanted them. She said “No. I don’t like storebought plums.” This lady, older than myself, piped in and said to Addie “What other kinds of plums are there?” Addie said “Granny’s plum trees!” The lady looked at me like . . this child needs help. I told her that we had plum trees at our previous house and Addie would pick plums and eat them off the tree. The lady said “Oh . . THOSE kinds of plums!”
That was kinda weird.
The Cheese Conversation:
I was looking for whole milk mozzarella another older lady walked over to me and said “Can you read this sign?” It was on the very bottom and part of it was kinda tucked under a ledge so you couldn’t read which brand of cheese was on sale. I told her .. no, I can’t read it unless I get down on the floor and I’m not doing that but I can take a picture and read it. I took a picture and showed her the cheese that was on sale.
We hadn’t even walked away and Addie said “Does she think you work here or something?” I told her no . . she just needed help and I was the closest person around.
The Granny Conversation:
Addie says “Hey Granny” no less than a million times a day. In Walmart, she saw two million things she wanted so she said “Hey Granny” contantly. Really . . non-stop.
A man walked by us and and Addie happened to not be talking and the man said “Hey Granny! Hey Granny! Hey Granny!” We laughed and I said “Yes. I hear that non-stop!”
I was looking at something a couple of aisles over and he passed us again and said the same thing. Addie said “I don’t think he’s very funny!” I told her . . he’s just picking . . he probably had grandkids that do the same thing.
Later she said “I’m not saying Hey Granny any more today” . . but she did. I told her I don’t mind at all. Being with her, hearing her talking to me is what I missed for too long. I love every minute I’m with her.
