    Tales from the City

    Not sold on parenthood

    Father jokes while son loafs.

    While shopping at the Wegmans in Northborough on a busy weekend afternoon, I passed a father pushing a cart with his adorable little boy sprawled in the section reserved for the food, not sitting in the little seat at the front. I couldn’t resist asking, “What aisle are the little boys in?” Without missing a beat, the father deadpanned, “This is a return!”
