Tyisms: Party Planning


We were stopped at a stoplight on the way to school this morning and--like he does every day--Ty's looking around, reading various signs on stores and banks around that intersection.We're just starting to move when he looks over and reads “Party Planning” outloud.  He stops and thinks for a second and then he excitedly tells me, “Mama!  We can go there to get stuff for my birthday!”

Me:  “No, Bud.  That’s not for birthday parties.  That’s for grown up parties.”

Ty:  “Cause they smoke in there?”

Me:  “No, that’s the Liquor Store, Bud.  They sell alcohol there.”

Ty:  "Oh.  You're right.  We don't want to go there."
