The first store was uneventful. Totally wonderful and amazing, but uneventful in the BIG EVENT kind of way. But the second one we went to today WAS eventful.
As we walked in, there was a sweet and very frightened grackle gauging how to get the heck out of the store. It was bumping into the windows, jumping and flying up and down, up and down. Dave and I didn't even say anything to each other, but we both totally felt, "We got this." We went to the open shelving where the grackle was basically freaking out. Dave blocked on the right and I used my canvas bag on the left to block it on that side. And then I reached in and cradled it around the back.
That little grackle was so happy when I walked out the door, placed it on my finger, and it took off.
...and thus our obsessive art supply store treks were completely validated. I wonder where we're going tomorrow!
