On a summer evening, not long ago . . .
Crystal and Sir Beads are out doing some errands. They decide to stop at their favorite discount store . . .
Crystal: Oh my gosh! Look at THIS!!! And only $3.99! I can’t believe it.
Sir beads: What?
Crystal: (breathlessly) Look! It’s a paper punch with sand castles and pails and shovels and a little starfish!
Sir Beads: Oh, very nice.
Crystal: It has a beach theme and you know I spent practically every waking moment on the beach as a kid – well, during the summer season, at least.
Sir Beads: (Nods and then smiles.)
Crystal: Honestly, it’s SO cute!!! I just can’t leave it here for $3.99!
Sir Beads: Oh, definitely not. (He winks.)
Crystal: I know. I know! I’m still a big kid.
