hook-er

off to the store we went this weekend
to purchase work clothes for the one
who brings home the bacon

what a beautiful, sunny day it was
finally
a peek at spring

the young one
holding my hand
both of us looking down
in the glare of the sun

he notices everything
this miniature version of his dad

"look, mom, a hook-er!"
(dash added to prevent weird
internet searches from finding my site)


for a second
i wasn't sure what he meant

but then it dawned on me
as we passed the big pickup truck
that you hook up a trailer
to the truck with the hook-er

after a short lesson in trailer hitches
we went on with our day

2 rays through the fog:

That is hilareous! Did you keep yourself from laughing out loud? Because I don't think i would have been able to hold it in.

Oh, and you've been tagged. Na-na-na-na-naaaaaa

Isn't he the cutest? I love their wording for objects they don't know the name of. He's a keeper!
