My friend and I went Good Will hunting today and then had dinner at a Mexican restaurant. While we were checking out, she told me about how when her daughter was little and asked for something, she’d sometimes say no. As parents are wont to do!
After she said no, her father would tell his granddaughter, “Mommy abuses you.”
They went into a store then and when she told her daughter “No” about buying something, the precocious child told a passerby, “Momma ‘buses me!”
The bystander followed my friend throughout the rest of the store that shopping day!
And my own “Goodwill” hunting day turned out well. Between my daughter and I, we bought about 20 shirts, 3 blazers, pants, shorts, and 8 sweaters for $85.00. Good will hunting, indeed.
