I had the honor of bringing Paige on her first trip to the LCBO. It was a magical moment. For me anyways. She mostly slept. As I brought my bottle up to the counter, the cashier peered into Paige's carrier and made an appropriate "awww".
Then she said "Ooh, and she looks brand new too!".
To which I replied, "Yup, she's fresh out of the box".
Fresh out of the box.
As soon as I said it, I realized that I could have chosen a better phrase. The cashier didn't say anything but I was still relieved when Paige broke the awkwardness of the moment with some fussing.
