Can I Take That Back?
It was a farmers market Sunday. I sat behind this table (above) and watched the world go by. (My table to the side is below.)
As happens, kids would walk by. And some clearly had an interest in something or other. I could see it in their eyes. They'd stare a bit before walking on.
So, I called out to one. "You can come over and touch..."
At which point I realized how that sounded. Sometimes I should not be allowed to talk.
(I encourage kids to touch my wares. Most are washable, and all are unbreakable, so it's not like the kids are going to bother anything.)
