That's what the grammatically incorrect sign in Target proclaimed in 3 foot high letters.
"Mom? Isn't that wrong?"
Smiling at my 9 year old's grammar prowess, I answered, "Yep. But sometimes advertisers break grammar rules on purpose to try to make a point."
Ab thought about it for a moment and then said, "Oh. And the giant corn on the cob hanging from the ceiling ?"
"That," I answered, "is just goofy."
Later, as we were leaving, Ethan spied another ridiculously large summer icon. It was a giant beach ball in the parking lot. This was no doubt also part of the Summer Funner promotion except it was not an actual beach ball. Instead, it was one of Target's giant red, concrete balls that line their parking lot . . . painted to look like a beach ball.

"Hey Mom! Watch this! " Ethan called with excitement.
And before I could yell, "Nooooooo!" Ethan wound up his left leg and gave that imitation beach ball a swift soccer kick.
I'll admit . . .it was hard not to laugh when the boy went down yelping and grabbing his toe.
Always is around here.
