I was in the soap isle of the grocery store. A mother with a toddler in her cart passed me and went around the end of the isle to the frozen section. I heard the toddler exclaim, “Oh! I wants dat!” I knew from experience that they were standing in front of the ice cream case.
Mom said, “I just bet you do, but those are for very good little boys.”
“I’s can be a good lil boy,” the toddler said. “I’s can. I’s can be weally good.”
Momma said, “But you weren’t very good this morning.” I walked around the isle to the ice cream section, mother and toddler had moved on to the frozen vegetables.
The toddler said, “I’s can be good. I’s can. I’s can be weally good. Weally.”
Momma said, “Good little boys don’t ask for things in the grocery store.”
The child looked at her with a frown on his face. “Bud if I’s no ask,” he said, “You no knows whad I’s wans.”
