On Happy Meal Toys

The 10 y.o.: What a cool Pokemon shirt!

The Mom: Too bad it’s in the Men’s section. Guys always get the coolest things…

The 10 y.o.: Like Happy Meal prizes. The girl ones were always a stupid pink plastic pony or the princess no one has ever heard of. When I had short hair, sometimes they’d give me the boy Happy Meal prize instead and they were amazing! They got cool things like.. grappling hooks and spy kits!
