"I have a two-cent penny!" Noah shows me what looks like a penny, but it says 2 cent euro or something or other and I tell him to save it. For when we go to Europe someday.
He scrunched his nose. Pushed his glasses up higher. Not believing we'll go. I, however, have big plans for us to go to Europe as a family. Some day.
"Well maybe I will just take my own family when I grow up..." his voice trailed off as he went to put real money in his new bank.
In my own little world I imagine that everyone has been to Europe, or will go someday. And how sad if not. But I realize that, yes I've been to Europe twice (namely Switzerland for, like, a few hours and France two different years. Two very different "me"s) but I have never been to New York City. I have never been to the Grand Canyon. (Although I feel like I have; I watched a lot of Brady Bunch.) I have never been to our country's capital. I have never been to Mexico.
But also in my own little world, I know I will go to all of those places, eventually. I've never been to Las Vegas and Jeff and I are headed there very soon. So, see.
Am I in my own little bubble? Have you never traveled? How far have you gone from home? Where is the best shopping Vegas? What should I wear k thanx.
