Today, while Katie was at work, he and I decided to go check out a local collectibles (read: “toys”) shop and as we were getting on the highway to head there, Nate saw a billboard off the side of the highway and said, “Dad! If we don’t find anything at our store, maybe we can check out that toy store!”

I looked up quickly from the road and read the billboard… for an Adult Toy Store.


(Not what we saw, obviously, but close enough)

I explained it to him. He just thought it meant cool, adult-themed action figures that are not meant for young kids. Admittedly, he wasn’t that far off.
