I entered O’Reilly Auto Parts on 44th Avenue West in Lynnwood and saw the employees looking at me from behind the counter. They looked as if they wanted to get a response from me. So I said, “Those are pretty cool. Did you have them made for you?”
The guy on the right said, “Yeah, my mom. She made four of them.”
I said, “She must love you.”
“Yeah,” he said.
I couldn’t tell if he was blushing.
