Yesterday after school Eric and I went to Costco. Eric’s favorite food at Costco food court is Cheese pizza. Usually I ordered the pizza for him. However, this time I encouraged him to order his own food himself. Eric looked a little nervous at my suggestion, but he was willing to give it a try.
When it was our turn, Eric went forward to the window bravely, and I followed him closely but stood behind him.
The lady asked me, “what do you want?”
I refrained to answer her question, and instead I asked Eric, “What do you want, Eric?”
The lady was kind enough to ask Eric a second time encouragingly, “What do you want?”
“A slice of cheese pizza.” Eric answered, with a little bit shy and in a low voice.
“Cheese pizza?” The lady asked again to confirm.
“Yes.” Eric was much relieved this time.
Afterwards, hubby and I paid Eric a big compliment for his brave behavior.
