He went thatta way!

We had a girls' lunch at Chik-Fil-A before leaving town with Grandma, Teriney and her kids.
The play area was closed to clean a "spill".
We were the lucky group sitting by the door that got to explain it to several groups.

A boy and girl walked up to the doors to go play.

Me: the play area is closed today.
girl: why?
Me: they're cleaning it.
girl: why?
Me: someone had an accident and they're cleaning it.
boy: who?
Me: I don't know. (this is where a six year old boy gives us the third degree)
boy: was it a boy or a girl?
Me: I don't know.
boy: how old were they?
Me: I don't know, it's just closed to clean it during lunch. sorry.
(boy and girl walk away, looking doubtful that we weren't leading them astray to keep the play area to ourselves)
Grandma: it was a boy about your age!
Me and Teriney: (laughing so hard we are going to make more "spills"!)

ps-while the girls were disappointed to not play, I love Chik-Fil-A! I can't eat there all the time, my stomach would rebel, but I just love going to a clean place with clean facilities and a clean play area where they give you placemats, the kid straws are "bendy", you can get a fruit cup instead of fries, and there are sweet ladies who refill your drinks, give your kids free ice cream, and hand out samples of their shakes. It's worth the extra buck or two every once in a while!
