Cloak and Dagger in the Easter Egg Aisle

22 Mar

We went shopping this morning. Tech Support had a couple of work-related errends to run while we were in town, so a certain super-secret mission was assigned to Boyo and Sasquatch. I got banished to the far side of the car while the three men in my life conspired together, and sums of money changed hands. Then I had to escort my two Secret Agents to the Easter egg aisle of Big W and wait – “No peeking, Mum, ‘cos it’s a secret!”.

After three laps of the aisle they still couldn’t find what they were looking for, so I suggested they ask for help. They thought this was a great idea, but suddenly got shy when we approached the girl who was stacking more chocolate eggs on the shelf, so I had to ask her for help in the super-secret mission about which I know nothing. The girl thought it was wonderfully cute, and happily took the boys aside for another whispered conference. Very shortly my boys were back with triumphant smiles and a suspicious-looking bulge inside their canvas eco-bag. When we got to the checkout I was again ordered to avert my eyes while the transaction took place, and after TS picked us up there was more Secret Men’s Business conducted almost under my nose.

I wonder what it could be?

    hee hee hee!! Even better than when we took the kids to the shops and separated so that DD#1 and DS could buy each other birthday prezzies, and then performed a complicated series of delayed car-entering manoeuvres in order to keep items hidden in the boot :>

    I love the transparent secrets of little people!! They are so excited to surprise you that they can hardly stand it and usually blurt out what it is before you get the package open. I miss those days!
