A Little Boy in the Grocery Store


 
If you take a boy to the grocery store, poof! magical things happen:
~Pop Tarts, sour popsicles, and strawberry soda poof! appear in your cart.
~Things like broccoli, lettuce, whole grains poof! disappear out of your cart.
~Cereals transform: Cheerios turn into Frosted Flakes 
and Raisin Bran into Cocoa Krispies. poof! poof!

 
If you take a boy to the grocery store, it won’t be a quick trip.
~You will be distracted.
~Your grocery list will no longer mean anything; in fact, poof! it disappears.
~You will say no and put it down countless times.


If you take a boy to the grocery store, he will find hidden treasures.
~Like these, nestled between the candy bars in the check-out lane.
 
 
And I am thinking ...
If you take a boy to the grocery store,
you'll be so glad you did.

I bambini hanno un'incredibile magia, è per questo che sono speciali.
