The Pleasures of Loew's

The threesome pondered lighting fixtures while I took pictures (whiling away the time while a friend shopped). A woman in her forties/fifties (?) with another in her twenties and a little girl, shopping-carted and belted in. 

While the middle one shopped, the older woman and little girl giggled and played. A length of something black and flexible was involved (rubber hose? pool floatie?). 

At one point, the older woman saw me taking a photo (maybe this one) while I noticed their joyous bi-generational horseplay, and we smiled in that knowing way that says Even a shopping trip when we're not the ones buying can provide escapist pleasure from the grind of daily living.

Made my day.
