Micah: Mommy, are you going to pay for the meat or steal it again?
Me: What? Steal what? What are you talking about.
Micah: You never pay for meat. You always just take it without paying.
Me: No, I don't, Micah. I always pay for it. Always.
Micah: I always come to Publix when you buy meat and you don't pay for it.
Me: (sheepishly laughing at the butcher standing right on the other side of the meat next to the open window) I ALWAYS pay for the meat and everything else we buy.
We walk away from there with my trying to convince Micah that I don't steal meat from Publix. We picked up a couple of other things and then went to the register to pay. As we were putting our things on the belt, the conversation continued.
Micah: You ALWAYS pay for things here.
Me: And, I ALWAYS pay for meat.
Micah: I have never one time seen you give them money through that window. You just put that meat in your buggy and walk away. You have never paid.
Me: OHHHHHHHH. I see what you mean. You aren't supposed to pay at that window. You are supposed to pay up here.
Micah: Well, no one ever told me that before.
So, if Micah happens to have mentioned to you that I steal meat from Publix...Totally not true! I just pay at the register rather than through the butcher's window.
