Recently we had to rent a car to fulfill some travelling need that split up Tyler and I for a few days. As usual, we were pushing the limits on when the car had to be returned, and we found ourselves with about 10 minutes to go until the car rental company's grace period ended and we faced pretty big over-charges.
We were all really hungry as well, and as my good friend Peggy says, we were more "hangry" than hungry. I brusquely told Isaac to come with me to return the rental car while Tyler and Isabelle stayed in our own car on the street, where we would meet them soon to go and eat.
Isaac, as a growing boy, was more concerned about what, when, how, and where we were going to eat, than the possible fees we'd have to pay if the car was late. He kept asking, as we dashed the car rental keys to the rental counter, "Can't we just stop here and eat mom?" or "Isn't that an Indian restaurant over there we could eat at?"
I kept pulling him along with me and finally, finally! we made it just in time and were rid of the blasted rental.
On the walk back to our car to meet Tyler and Isabelle, we took a shortcut through a little shopping mall alley way. There were some good smells coming from restaraunts inside- which Isaac was grateful for. I laughed hysterically when he piped up with-
"OH MOM! It smells soooooo good! It smells JUST LIKE CANADIAN FOOD!"
