I took the car to be serviced this week. It took an hour and a half and Oli and I waited at the dealership for the work to be completed. An hour and a half with a good book or some knitting would pass very quickly. An hour and a half with an antsy 4 year old takes forever. During that time, my guy:
*Ate a donut (free donuts!)
*emptied the toy bin in the play area
*picked up the toys
*explored the bathroom
*decided to poop (what is it about public bathrooms?!?)
*got some water
*spilled it all over the floor and himself, by accident
*cleaned up
*danced to the muzak playing in the waiting room
*ate another donut
*sang a bit
*swiped my scarf to tie around a chair to drive a “horse carriage”
*galloped around the room
*ate a cookie
*gave me 12 kisses
*played with a plastic viking
*counted the snacks in the vending machine “1-2-3-4-5, 1-2-3-4-5, A LOT!”
*looked through a catalog
*opened and climbed around in every car on the dealership floor
*emptied out my purse in pursuit of toys
*skipped a bit
Finally, the car was ready. As we were driving away, I realized that next fall, when I’m doing these errands alone with nothing but a book for company, it will be so lonely.
