Today I took Iain to Toys-R-Us. I admit - it was stupid.
Anyway, we needed birthday presents for his friends. They're twins and the party's next weekend. So we poked around the store, looking at Transformers and Legos and Spiderman and lots of other things.
Then it was time to check out. Iain insisted that he needed a toy. "You have to get me a gift!"
No. Not your turn.
At checkout, he protested. "You have to!" "You're not nice to me!"
"It's against the LAW!"
"It's illegal for me to refuse to buy you a present?"
The checkout girl was giggling madly. Do you know a good lawyer? I'm going to need one.
