Here's some side banter back and forth, overheard between mother and child at a recently opened bookstore in the Old Port. A young girl, maybe ten, is sitting on a front counter in the afternoon sun. "Mom, I know what I want. I need to get one more thing. You promised." Mom mentions, "Did you see those silver, trinket bracelets in the back?" The young girl kicking her feet to and fro, with a look like she's lost in another world says, "Mom, I know what I want." Her mother returns with, "So, what do you want? Have you seen a book? We've gotta go. We're late now." Nonchalantly, she answers, "No, but I'll know when I see it." Promises and tired kids just aren't a good combination, when you're on vacation. I'm experienced in this. Aren't we all?
