bee in my bonnet


So, I regretfully don't have any pics for you
with today's events of
shopping for a new coat for Isaiah.

It was quite a day.

I had previously looked at Walmart and they were not marked down.
I just wasn't willing to buy a winter coat at this time of year
and not have it marked down significantly.

totally out of coats.
No joke.

But I did score a Starbuck's coffee.
But that's neither here, nor there.

And then,
the events turned suddenly after we finally came home with
a $12.98 coat.
Thank you very much, Sam's Club.

He proudly showed everyone at home his new prized
possession...only for Eli to proceed to
show Isaiah that his old coat was IN THEIR CLOSET.

Can you say,

Lesson learned:
English communication is good.
I wish we had more of it...
In our country,
and in our home.



And for now, I choose to say no more about this matter.

Matilda Joyce said...

You make me laugh daily, and sometimes even more often!!!! Thank God his new coat was so inexpensive!

David and Janet Hurley said...

ENGLISH--yes, we would love more of it at our house too. I can only imagine what evil plots are being brewed in my Chinese speaker's conversations.

Tesseraemum said...

That is CLASSIC!
Gotta love it! If it had been one of the girls I would have totally thought they hid it to score a new coat but boys don't think that way!!!

Holly said...

Sally-Girl! said...

12.98 is a score!!! hope the black eye is looking better in his new coat!

Robin said...

Debby said...

Madeleine said...

UGH! SAME THING happened to me!! Samuel lost his jacket, and when I FINALLY thought, I do not want DYFS taking my kid away because he has not jacket, I broke down and bought a new one.

Only to find his other one IN HIS CLOSET after he wore the new one once.

I wanted to shoot someone in the foot.

Even if it was just a nerf gun.

And for the record. We ALL speak English in this house. :P

I feel your pain woman. It is not the 12 bucks as much as the PRINCIPLE of the thing.

( I have to admit though, I LAUGHED when I read this. You, too will laugh one day soon)

Jean said...
