Beauty in the day: Turnip came to see me today. He actually found a few reasons to come by, but I never spoke to him on those occasions. He finally came in later in the day and sauntered up to the counter by my desk. “So, did you have a nice weekend?”
I told him that I did.
“Do you have any plans?”
Hmmmm…. “Do you mean for the evening?”
“Well, I will go home and make some dinner.”
“No, I mean -”
“You mean after school gets out for the summer?”
“Yes. What will you do for the summer?”
“Well, I might work at Summer School. Are you going to Summer School? I think I will work at Lake Hills.”
“Lake Hills? I will tell my mom.” He started out the door and then turned and came back. “Ms. Nordstrom, right?”
“YEP! I’m gonna check!” And then he was off.
