I grabbed a twelve-pack of beer at the local grocery store

then got in line at one of the registers.


Ahead of me was a woman with a cart of stuff, and

in her cart was a toddler. I assumed it was hers.


The toddler looked at me and blinked its eyes.

Reminded me of an owl.


I took a closer look at the toddler

to see if it was worthy of the comparison.


It didn't seem to have any interest in me at all, 

so I figured the child was probably at least as wise

as an owl.
