When I was his age, my aunt would sometimes take me to work with her at a law firm. She would wake me up early, we would take the city bus and if I made copies and typed papers for her (I was a kid, so my papers consisted of typing with one finger two sentences of a briefing) she would bring me across the street to @candyland1932 where I would get $2 worth of candies, popcorn and an icee. Usually, the same lady would be there every single time. A couple days ago I took Jaziah to what is now one of his favorite places, as I ordered $1 worth of candy for him a popcorn and some chocolates (for me duh) I realized that the lady taking my order was the same lady from when I was little. I asked her how long she’s worked there (I mean she literally hasn’t aged one bit!) and she told me it was her 38th year!! As we continued to talk, she met my son and when she returned with my payment she handed me two tickets to the children’s museum & said “welcome back, here’s another part of MN he hasn’t seen yet, I want you to take him” 😘😘 I think I’ll stop this story here, because, memories is simply why I came back. I hope she’s there 38 more years putting smiles on kids faces who come in w/a couple dollars and leave with pure happiness. 😘 @mnchildmuseum .
