Frank's Flashbacks #2

"Wildcat and the Blue Bookstore"

Frank didn’t quite get his café mocha, though. My son decided to tag along and insisted we go to the “blue bookstore.” Fortunately for me, Frank was willing to allow the concession as long as he got something with caffeine in it.

I could quickly see these two were going to get into a lot of trouble, because it was taking a long time to find what I was looking for. They were a little tired, so I let them take a nap while I kept looking.

Unfortunately, they didn’t sleep as long as I thought they would and well… you can probably guess the rest.

My search for a book was finally successful, and having found my son and Frank, we made our way to the café for something to drink.
