Mildly Amusing, Wal-Mart

Some Occasions Just Call For Fancy

I went to Wal-Mart today and there was no incident. I just wanted to report that.


Last week when Sean and I went grocery shopping, he was very insistent that he wear his dress shoes. With his sweatpants. I tried to tell him there was no reason to get all fancied up, that we were just going to Wal-Mart and he might not want to go to the trouble. But he was insistent saying, “I need to be fancy.” And well, I can understand that. Sometimes one needs to be fancy, even if it is just at Wal-Mart.

The extra effort was not lost on the greeter.

  1. Now those are “happy feet!” I’m hoping you were able to get those stickers off of those spiffy shoes when he was all done being fancy. Well, if not, God bless the inventor of Goo-Gone (which also does a great job of getting works of unbridled crayon art off of walls, by the way).

  2. Uh oh to Chilihead’s comment – I have an almost-five-year old who still enjoys being dapper. He’s a manly guy, though – despite his love of bowties and patent shoes – so I always pictured him being the well-clad James Bond type and not Truman Capote. Either way, he’s my baby.
    How cute are those stickers on Sean’s shoes?

  3. Fancy is important. I have two fancy girls who got cowgirl boots in pink and red for Christmas and now those are important for being fancy. My three year old needs a scarf tied somewhere so when Minnesota Mom reccommended Fancy Nancy I knew we needed this book. Maybe Sean needs it too. The girl teaches her mom, dad, and brother to be fancy, too.

  4. It’s kind of like when someone gets gussied up for a school open house. Or something.

    You’re lucky. My son still puts his on his nose.

  5. So cute! My son has exactly TWO pairs of shoes – sneakers and crocs. BTW – I followed your advice, and even though I couldn’t find a Cavendars, I did find a western store. It’s off to buy cowboy boots!

  6. If only his life could always be so happy. Don’t you just wish you could wave a magic wand and make it so? He is way way way precious!
