AVA: Well, hello handsome. How can I help you today?
CHARLIE: Well, uh, I’m a little tired of these tred socks. I saw some kids my age at the playground yesterday and they all had velcros (catches himself getting too excited and reels it in) and that’s all. No big deal. Anyway, I’m just here to look. I’m kind of, on a serious budget and probably won’t even buy anything.
AVA: Well. (goes from ecstatic to deflated but knows he’s playing hard ball) It doesn’t hurt to just try a few of these on, right? There’s no harm in that…
CHARLIE: Umm, yeah, (looking sheepishly at the ground), I guess not.
AVA: What are you looking for? What is your taste?
AVA: Oh wait! Let me guess. I’m super good at this! You’re the type of man that wants something sleek and sophisticated. Something serious. You’re a serious fellow. You are very driven and have your eye on the prize. You want something unique and distinguished.
AVA: Now (hunching down, looking around as if to tell him the largest secret, almost whispering), we just got these in this morning. You’re the first one to see them. They’re a resilient princess polymer with a clear wedge heel. The princess sticker on the bow is VERY in right now and for the money, you just can’t pass it up.
CHARLIE: Ehh, I don’t know. Oh boy. (Charlie is backpeddling and getting nervous) They look a little….dainty? Plus, I don’t see any velcro.
AVA: (gets in a huff) Oh, nonsense! I know two things in this world, how to shit my pants in public AND style. You have style. THESE have style.
CHARLIE: Ahhh. Well…you know, I’m kinda shopping with my Dad today, let’s get his opinion, huh?

Personally, I’d go with a “Oh, these just don’t quite fit right, maybe I’ll come back when you get the next shipment in that has my size.” Then run like hell and never look back.

OMG… too hysterical. Charlie has ballet tutus in his future, tiaras, and Ava’a heel collection in which to be dressed. Charlie… Just say No !! We’ve got incriminating photos of Robbie dressed in his sis’ pink tutu. He lives to regret it. Fight hard. :}
Ava… way to go !
Hilarious..laughed out loud…Charlies expressions are the best!
