Life Lesson

“Mummy, that Akka in the store has given us a toothbrush, without realising it’s already in the toothpaste carton,” said my ten-year-old daughter.

“Okay, I’ll return it tomorrow, it’s already 9’o o’clock. I’m tired, baby.” I noticed her furrowed brows.

I drove to the store. The shutters were halfway down.

Nah, humanity.
