Yesterday Arc went with the Dearliest to run errands, and the story goes that the little blond almost-3-year-old was the center of attention wherever they went.
Until they got to their last destination.
Upon entering, Arc noticed a woman with a puppy, and she was surrounded by lots and lots of ooohing and awwing people. Arc oohed and awwed a little, but then he realized no one was paying attention to him. He gave the group an enticing, “Hi!” but all he got in return was a quick half smile from one lady.
The puppy was clearly more popular, and as the Dearliest wheeled the cart away, Arc had only one comment.
