Little Blog’s shopping dilemma July 7, 2007

Posted by biglittleblog in Food and drink, Holidays and travel, Shopping and surfing.

Following the Great Shopping List Disaster and pointed enquiries from the credit card company, Little Blog has been instructed not only to ask for permission if she wants to shop on the Internet, but also to do so under adult supervision.

And no, her big sister, Sunshine, is not an adult, even if she is almost 10.

Today she announced: “Mom, I really have to go shopping on the computer.”

“Why, Little Blog?”

“To buy cheese for Sunshine.”

“Why do you want to buy cheese for your sister?”

“Because I want to go shopping for our holiday and because I’m going shopping I want to buy something for my sister and I thought what will she like and then I thought cheese because there’s no grass at the beach and so there’s no cows at the beach so you can’t get milk to make the cheese and so we won’t be able to get cheese at the beach and she really loves cheese.”

“Do you really think it’s a good idea to buy cheese on the computer, Little Blog?”

“That’s why I came to ask you. Because mice also love cheese. So I’m not sure if the computer mouse will let me have the cheese.”

“Maybe you should think of something a mouse will let you keep, Little Blog.”

So far Little Blog has come up with the following list:

  • a new bucket and spade;
  • a pencil, blue or green;
  • an orange ball;
  • a sausage.

    She has let it be known that further recommendations are welcome.
