my kids know me so well. this is a conversation i had with eva the other day when i needed to return something to kohls...
me: real quick, i have to stop into kohls and return something. 
eva: oh, i know how it's going to go, you're going to walk in and return your pants. then on the way out, you'll stop and say, ooooh, wait one second, i see something i like. and then we'll be at kohls forever.
and she was right. except this time, i bough the stuff without trying it on first. we were in and out in 15 minutes, not forever. i'll show her!
