What is it about this store and my red-heads that always makes for some good old fashioned trouble? I don’t shop at Fareway regularly for our groceries, but I usually make a trip there once or twice a month to grab some meat and other things. Yesterday we had gotten our items and had one last aisle to go down on our way to the check-out register. By this time our cart was full, so JJ and Jayla weren’t catching a ride but instead skipping behind me down the aisle. I stopped our progress towards check out to look at some breadsticks and all of a sudden I heard Jayla say….
“JJ, WATCH THIS – I’M GONNA PULL MY PANTS UP!”
Now, before I tell you what happened next, may I accentuate the fact that Jayla has the LOUDEST little girl indoor voice on earth. Her normal, everyday voice could put an opera singer to shame. So, when she said this, she not only caught JJ’s attention, but also caught a glance from the 4 sets of elderly couples that happened to be in our aisle (Fareway was PACKED yesterday). And now that you can picture the scene, here’s what happened next…..
Once I heard her yell this I turned around to see what the commotion was all about, and I caught the TAIL END of a FULL-OUT NAKED BOTTOM as Jayla had pulled her pants DOWN instead of up. The angle of how she was standing was just perfect to MOON every single one of the great-grandmas and great-grandpas that were staring at the little girl with the loud voice! And then, all 8 of these Fareway-goers looked at eachother simultaneously and started ROLLING WITH LAUGHTER! Whew! I thought I was going to get some bad looks on this one! Of course laughter was the exact response Jayla was hoping for, and she pulled her pants up and continued hopping along the aisle with a big old smile on her face. But the best part of all of this, was watching JJ’s reaction. After the moon and the response of laughter I kid you not he was SO EMBARRASED. He quickly turned and started walking towards me with these eyes that said ‘I cannot believe she just did that!’ Of course he thought it was a little funny too, but I am telling you, his face turned the exact shade of cardinal red as his ISU sweatshirt that he had on.
Sorry JJ, but I am guessing that this will not be the last time that we get embarrassed by some antics from our sweet and sassy little Jayla. But it sure made for a good laugh!
