On Saturday morning, Em and I took dad and Ellie to Einstein for bagels and coffee and then to the Overland Park farmer's market. (My ideal Saturday morning is coffee and the farmer's market...hand's down).
After the market, my dad and I decided to go to the Nelson-Atkins Museum. I'm not sure if I'm boring company or what, but he was yawning up a storm on the way to the Nelson. I offered to stop at Starbucks on the Plaza and he was more than thrilled to consume even more caffeine.
We sat on the deck and people watched and talked. Eventually I asked him if I'd ever told him about my invention (sorry, it cannot be revealed here). I apparently hadn't told him and he suddenly became so excited. Maybe the Einstein and Starbucks coffee were working their magic together or maybe I was actually onto something. After drawing on napkins, we set out for a few stores on the Plaza so I could better describe my thoughts. Needless to say, my dad now thinks I'm a genius and wants a 7% finders fee after following me to Halls, Eddie Bauer, J. Crew, Coach and Anthropologie. He followed up on Monday by sending me links to manufacturers in the area.
I'm not sure what God is trying to say with the headless men...
