"Target has snowboots for $5/pair!"
"I grabbed some for mine for the snow tomorrow. Even if they only wear them once, for five bucks... Do you need any?"
On the other end, A. thinks, then quickly begins walking toward her children's rooms.
"You know, S. could use some. And L. Do you mind?"
"God, no, I'm here, and they're going fast. What sizes?"
And so when I approach the register, I have a cart full of snowboots, including one quite lavender pair that the youngest will surely admire when he sees them on A.'s younger daughter's feet.
