The other day we were wandering around a gift shop that had some rather lovely items made from wood. Our 8 year old became enthralled with a HUGE rocking horse that was priced at a mere $3999. Yes, that’s three thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars. For a rocking horse.
After rocking away for five minutes or so, she was so in love that she declared she wasn’t leaving the store without the horse. I chuckled and told her there was no way we’d be buying her a four thousand dollar horse.
She said, “Can’t you talk the lady into taking it down a notch?”
I kinda doubt any amount of haggling skills are enough to bring that pony down into our price range. But I am glad we got a shot of her enjoying the horse.
