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.


  1. You said it just right.

  2. I shared this story with a friend and she snorted pop out her nose, so I'm with Jody on this one.
