A New Thing Called Layaway...

Sunday afternoon we had lunch with some friends and their teenage son was sitting next to me. I told him how much I liked the new shirt he was wearing.  In fact, it was one of those gender-neutral shirts that I might have pulled off the rack and taken to the fitting room myself. He was very excited as he told me about this program that they have where you can put some money down to hold your items.  You pay on them and once you have paid the full amount you can take the items home. I tilted my head a little and said, "You mean layaway?"  He said, "Yeah, layaway!"  Oh, my! I really am getting old!
