The other night, as we were driving home from church, a commercial came on the radio for Nightie Nites (http://nightienites.com/) Plus Size Lingerie (Tagline: Curves are beautiful at Nightie Nites). It sounds like a pretty tasteful store and nothing about the commercial was objectionable. There was silence from the back seat. I should've known to be suspicious. During the next commercial, the following conversation began:
Will: Mom, why don't we EVER go to Nightie Nites?
Mom: Well, why would we?
Will: I want to go there.
Will: I want to see what they have there.
Mom: Honey, all they have there are ladies pajamas.
Will: THEY DON'T HAVE TOYS?!?
Will: Why don't you go there, since you're a lady?
Mom: Well, their "pajamas" won't fit me. They're made for ladies who are just a little bigger than me.
The end, or so I thought. Then today, as we are eating lunch...
Will: Mom, if you got just a LITTLE bigger, then would you go to Nightie Nites?
Will: Mom, why do you have to be BIG and BEAUTIFUL to go to Nightie Nites?
I wondered which of my qualifications he was worried about. But I just laughed and changed the subject.
Fun at the Fair
