Conversations with My Lakota Mom, No. 2

—Where’re we going?

—Where?

—Old Country Buffet.

—Hrumph

—What’s wrong?

—You’re taking me to Costco’s for the free samples, again.

—No. I’m not!

—Yes, you are, that’s where you took me last time. And then you tried to tell me the hotdog condiments was a salad bar.
