I really needed this story after the week I've had. You can always count on Dan to make the simplest things hilarious. I'm not your typical female. I hate to shop; therefore, I felt Dan's pain in having to go into a place like BuyMart. You may plan to go in for one thing, but you always come out with more.
I loved seeing how Dan maneuvered his child through the store, getting things she needed, and testing the waters on things she might need or want for her upcoming birthday.
I also think the play between him and his wife is hilarious. Dan does a great job of showing how normal he and his family are. You see the love in the family, but you know their lives aren't perfect, and they make mistakes. When my god-daughter was growing up, we didn't have the mesh barriers for trampolines. I was always terrified that she bounce herself right off the thing, as they experienced.
As always, these stories are a must read for anyone who needs to bring a smile into their day, as I did today, and anyone who just needs to feel normal in a society where the media constantly makes most of us feel abnormal if our lives aren't perfect or isn't full of drama.
