Walmarts and Starbuck and Grandpas


Today, when Molly stepped into the local Walmart to buy a walker for her grandpa Russell the first thing she said was:

“Wow, this place is skanky.”

It reminded me how Wolf once noted that dad, being of Filipino descent, often mixes things in a funny way.  For example:  “Today we went to Walmarts” or “We went to Starbuck today.”
