No Buying Of Balls

Bubbles was fascinated by the tubes of decorative faux pearls in the home decor shop. She loved the colors and the round shapes. Big ones, small ones, pretty ones, bright ones.

Bubbles: What is this?

Auntie Imp: Balls.

Bubbles pondered about them for a while, picking them up and looking at all the different colors. She likes pink. But she kept taking the tubes of green.

Bubbles: Take out. Open please.

Auntie Imp: Nope. I can't. It belongs to the store. You can look at them, but you can't take them out unless you buy them.

Bubbles, without a pause, reached a very natural conclusion: Buy them now, Auntie Imp. Buy. Now.

No no no. Auntie Imp is not going to string together anymore balls or beads this week. I've had enough of it over the weekend! The girlfriend laughed and distracted her daughter with other items. Bubbles promptly abandoned the balls and went to stare at silver pieces. Wheww.
