A first...

So, quick story:
John and I went to Costco today to do some grocery shopping. There was a guy there selling those "Little Giant" ladders, you know Costco always has companies in there selling their own product. Well, John and I walk by and the guy looks at me and asks "Are you grown?" I responded: "Yes." What else do I say. He just laughed after I answered. I was so taken back, mostly because I had never been asked that question before but partly because that is kind of a rude question to ask. Don't you think? Did he think I was a dwarf, or did he think I was young? It was just a weird question! Now, I got over what I thought to be a tiny bit rude but for the rest of the afternoon was just plain shocked that someone would ask someone that. I wish now, that I would have told him that I was 9 or something. I don't know what he would have thought then but...it might have been funnier for us to answer that way.

Geez! That's like the time I got counted as a youth group kid by a parent once on the bus to camp. Grrr...
That would've been funny if you had turned to John and said, "daddy?"

Remember the source....The guy is trying to get you to purchase a $800 ladder, or convince you that you need a $800 ladder....
I can't wait to ask you if you're grown or not at church on Sunday. I'll ask you what class you belong in at the registration table?
