From The Mud Puddle

From my daughter's Abeka Economics book...

"Since the moment when, as children, we learned that things can be bought in
little shops or great supermarkets, most of us have been frustrated from time to
time in our pursuit of things. We remember the thrill of discovering that
toys and candy were for sale and the disappointment of finding out that certain
persons in authority insisted on buying milk or bread or clothes until there was
little or no money left to buy nice things for children."

I loved this passage. As my daughter does seem the author had a bit of left over childhood resentment perhaps spilling out there...LOL
