I take my sniffling child to Jewel for some essentials (including the last of the Peanut Butter Pumpkins). While there, I decide to snag him a Jack-o-lantern balloon for $1. I attach it to the cart and he begins to bounce it back and forth.
Cashier reaches over and gently takes a piece of the ribbon to ring it up. (Leaving the balloon still in Charlie’s hand).Commence freakout. He then starts shrieking as if she’s stealing it when this entire process takes – no lie – 2.3 seconds.
The ENTIRE ribbon is then safely back in his hands as he sniffles behind his binky.
Meanwhile, he gives the bag woman dirty looks each time she nears the cart to place our groceries inside – clearly thinking she’s out to take the balloon also.
Which brings us BACK to our home in which he and I also fight over said balloon and now Mr. Freakout is exhausted and napping.
