looking at the phone i notice that it’s my dad’s cell who was out playing tennis and running errands for us.
“hey daddy. it’s louissa.”
“hey louissa.Â mom said that you wanted bodywash, but i don’t know what that means.”
“bodywash.Â yeah.Â i want bodywash… you know — the stuff you wash your body with.”
– silence –
“are you in the bodywash section at wal-mart?”
“i’m in the shampoo section.Â is that close?”
“yeah close, but there’s a whole section for bodywash.”
“huh.Â [interupted by people he knows] uh… let me call you back in a minute.”
huh is right.
