Max is a huge fan of New Year’s. She relishes telling people “Happy New Year!” As she sat in the front of the cart at Walmart, she was like the queen of the Rose Parade. She waved at the shoppers and wished each of them a Happy New Year. Most did a double take, then smiled and wished her the same.
We neared the end of our trip and Max was still feeling festive. She wished each person on the aisle a Happy New Year individually. Each replied in kind. Then, just as there was a lull, she belts out:
“OH SOLO MIO”
in perfect pitch from the seat of the cart.
There were at least six cases of whiplash in the bread and frozen pizza aisle. Heads whirled around and jaws dropped.
Well, it wasn’t Auld Lang Sine but it certainly made an impression.
