Just now at Gartner’s Meat Market (actual meat purchasing, not “meat market”):
Kid sees the Wilderness Explorer sticker on my wallet: Hey, you’re a Wilderness Explorer!
Me: The Wilderness Explorer is a friend to all.
Kid: CAA! CAA! RARRR!
I get home and tell the story to Mr K. His reply: You are SUCH a dork.
Me: Not for that. I’m a dork for wearing my Buzz Lightyear shirt on the airplane and saluting little kids who salute me.
What? I am what happens when you tell a kid “well when you’re an adult you can do (insert anything ever mentioned) however you want”. So I am. And now? Ice cream for dinner!
