I was walking through Canadian Tire today, walking quickly past the tool section with eyes diverted from the possibilities, when I overheard the following conversation between a father and a 5 year old little girl.

Dad: checking out some curtain rods or something…

Little Girl: you can never have enough poles, right Daddy?

... I’m sure he has taught her this so when he’s looking at clamps or tools in general he’ll get the same response: you can never have enough, right Daddy??

My daughter used to start crying in checkout lines. It often afforded us a pass by concerned mothers feeling bad for the little girl hanging out with her idiot father. The first time she did this and then winked at me after we got in the truck I thought, “Daddy’s little girl.”
