970. Buying shirts
© Bruce Goodman 6 June 2016
And you thought buying clothes for an eleven year old girl was hard! Just try buying shirts for an eleven year old boy! Kimberley took her son shopping for a couple of shirts.
It was one of those department stores that have a bit of everything, and a reasonable range of boys’ clothing. Nathan wanted to try everything on. Does it match? Is it the right size? Will I grow out of it too soon? The pattern wasn’t right, it was too girly.
Kimberley was at the end of her tether. “It doesn’t matter, dear. They all look nice. Just make a choice.”
But Nathan had to try on one more shirt.
That was when the terrorist bomb went off.
