McDO, Umbrella, and The made-up Story
Last Thursday, my niece and I went to McDonalds to grab the new Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa toys free from every happy meal. The store is walking distance to our place but my niece asked me to ride on a tricycle. Upon arriving to McDo, my niece immediately went to the shelf where the toys are being displayed at while I queued up to the counter. Her eyes were glued to the toys, poring over the details of each toy. I remember, when KungFu Panda characters went out to McDonalds happy meals, we collected it all in less than two weeks. We both had crispy chicken, soda, and additional fries. While were having fun playing with Skipper and Marty, I rummaged my niece’s body bag, and then I noticed that our umbrella was missing. I blurted it out with alarm and with a snap; we both figured out that we left it on the tricycle. She got worried as much as do and I know that she took a part of responsibility to our things. I told her “ate, we’ll finish this food and we’ll figure out a solution.” After our meal, I told her that we’re just going on foot back home. On our way, we were goofing around for our lame excuses in losing the umbrella. Then I told her, “Mommy (my sister) will get mad ate”, we need to think of a solution”. She replied sharply, “We’ll buy one”. Then, we made a high five. We agreed to keep it as a secret until we have the replacement. When we got home, we were still laughing for losing the umbrella and kidding each other that we’d be busted to her mum. Our maid saw us in that euphoria and got questioning. We both told her that we have a secret. And our maid leveled up with her snooping to my niece. I got upstairs and spent my hours on the net while my niece was still wrangling over with our maid. When I got down, our maid told me that my niece has already told her about our secret. “What”, I asked Stacey. She just gave me wink. Then I asked Glenda, our maid, about it. Glenda said that our secret was my date for the coming Sunday that I needed to save money for that date and Stacey will help me out. After hearing that, I had a great laugh and had a high five with my niece. I never thought that my niece would be able to fabricate such story to get rid of Glenda’s inquest. LOL.
