Every day can be a new adventure. I do wake up miserable because I am NOT a morning person, but once I shower, drink some coffee, and eat something loaded with calories I’m good. Anyway, one of the boys I babysit has a birthday coming up, and I overheard a neighbor ask him what he wanted for this occasion. Timmy, not his real name, is only 5 and turning 6 but he knows exactly what he wants, and he’s told me but I still don’t know what it is. It is some kind of complicated army thing. He explained the toy to the neighbor, it has shooters here, armor there, rockets somewhere that are red, blah, blah, blah. The neighbor glazed over, and I could tell that she had entered into a nether world. Finally the neighbor interrupted Timmy, and asked if he would like a gift card.
Now Timmy is a smart boy but I thought a gift card for a 6 year old! Come on! Does Timmy even know what a gift card is? To my surprise Timmy said yes; that he would like a gift card to….wait for it; Kohls. Yes you read it correctly Kohls! Not Target, Toys R Us, The Bear Store, or Train Store….Kohls! I said wha, wha, what!? I told his mom later, and she then informed me that he had seen this monstrosity at Kohls and remembered that was where it was.
