little blue dog

furry baby boy

"It does that for new parents!" explained the cashier, in response to my puzzled look. The register had just spit out about eight coupons for baby goods.

I still must have had a blank look on my face. "This must be the first time you've bought baby food using your reward card," she offered.

I guess it was. I nodded, and she grinned broadly.

"Is it a boy or a girl?" She was really, genuinely excited. "A ... boy," I answered.

"Well, congrats!" She handed my receipt and handful of coupons, beaming.

I didn't have the heart to tell her I bought it for our cat, who's been fussy about his food lately, and loves this stuff. :)
