the time: 11:00 a.m.
the scene: chick-fil-a (mom wied, auntie a and i were discussing groceries for an upcoming trip ~ the children were playing on the playset)
after playing for 1 1/2 hours all three children came out thirsty. i said that i would get them courtesy cups of water within the next few minutes. a few seconds later i heard a little voice loudly ask "can i have a curdy cup of water?" m2 had walked through the restaurant, cut about 17 people waiting in line, and was on her tippy toes trying to get the attention of a worker. by the time i reached her she had her cup in hand had said "thank you" and was on her way back to our table.
