(or note to internet, whichever it may be)...
Don't take male child clutching naked female doll of different race into major retail store unless comfortable with strange looks.
In a nutshell:
- Zander's teacher let him take this baby doll, named Clara, home for the evening.
- We were having another family movie night and another sushi dinner to celebrate the passing of the lunar eclipse and Brad's new job. (Same company, different position.) Z and I stopped by Blockbuster video in a search of the critically-acclaimed, Oscar-winning (and hopefully benign) Pooh's Heffalump Movie. (More on the 'film' another day).
- Z insisted on bringing Clara into Blockbuster. I was hesitant only because she doesn't belong to us and I would feel dreadful if we lost her, but allowed it since he seemed sweetly attached to her.
- We got some mighty strange looks. Could have been because -- at the time -- Clara was not clothed. Not sure. Don't care. Quite enjoyed it in fact.
