Men and Fabric Stores

I was at our local fabric store just the other day. This being summer vacation, I was dragging my kids along with me. I discovered that seven year old boys aren't particularly impressed by cottons, silks and fat quarters. He managed to survive... barely. As we were waiting in the check-out line, he happened to spot a small section off to the side. It was filled with chairs, which were filled with men (mostly over the age of 60), and there were newspapers, magazines, etc.
A very knowing look crossed my son's face. "That's where the boys are," he muttered to himself. I guess he'd noticed he was the only male in the entire store.
Next time he'll probably want to be left with "the boys." Poor kid...
