Melt My Heart - Again

I love kids!

I particularly love kids when the love me back, but I'm still surprised when that happens. (That's just the way I am)

I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but I have a particular soft spot for all things 'Spongebob Squarepants', and this is often a reason kids like me. How can you not like an adult who watches a childish kid show?

Over the years I've received a variety of little gifts left for me at the church (work), from both adults and children alike, of some kind of Spongebob paraphernalia. And I try to keep them on display as long as possible without looking completely unprofessional (although, I'm not particularly concerned about it.)

Yesterday I had a call from a congregate about some other business. As our conversation was winding down she says "Oh ya ..... Zack and I were in the toy store on the weekend."

Zack is her 9 year old son, and one of my fav' kids.

She continues "Zack saw a 'Spongebob Lego set' and said "LJ WOULD LOVE THAT!! Can we buy it for her?"

Of course her answer was no, as it came with a $50 price tag. I completely understand of course, but his unselfish, childlike response was absolutely priceless to me.

It made my day, and I can't wait to see Zack on the weekend.

How was your week?

No. WAY! I love SB and I would consider spending $50 just for the lego Gary and his food bowl.

Awesome!

p.s. I'm working on changing the format of my comments. Hopefully everything will be back to normal on Monday.

I was impressed with your honesty, btw!

Oh, don't get me wrong. I'm going to try to get my husband to get it for me for Christmas. I never had lego as a kid. It's never to late to start.
On a side note: We should compare collections some time. That is if you have SP paraphenalia .....
