In his linear non-linear logic, Edouard reasoned that babies come from the shopping mall. Afterall, Mom gets all of her stuff from the store. For him, it makes perfect sense: babies are bought in a ready-to-assemble kit which seem simple enough to put together but take a really long time to assemble (think IKEA).
So following Edouard's train of thought:
- Jacob, Edouard's best friend, was purchased at the local Canadian Tire (note: Jacob's father owns the one in Blainville. Edouard reports that they get EVERYTHING there.)
- Edouard comes from McDonald's. He was the Happy Meal surprise. This, he says, explains my craving for their fries during my pregnancy.
- Charlotte was purchased at Zellers...using Grandma's Club Z points. (note: Grandma has an employee discount. Edouard reports that she gets EVERYTHING there.)
Edouard has since been trying to convince me to trade Charlotte for Jacob.
