The child I saw in the LIDL store
wore Harry Potter-type glasses.
He was nosey, so nosey he watched me intently as I placed my items of shopping onto the conveyor belt, before the check out. The child was so nosey, so intent on keeping an eye on me, he continued to stare at me even when I had finished placing my shopping onto the belt. I soon got tired of this. Casting a glance at the sweet potato I had placed on the conveyor belt, I noticed that it looked a bit like a gun, so grabbing hold of it, I pretended to shoot the ever so nosey child. Moreover, I laughed as I did this. The child was so shocked by what I had done he asked his mum to lift him up. However, safe in her arms, he soon saw the funny side of what I had done and began shooting at me with an imaginary gun of his own.
Over the course of the next hour, while my wife and I were doing the rest of our shopping in town, we saw that child and his parents on several other occasions. At one point I was so tired of playing imaginary shoot-outs, I turned around and walked away from them. A good while later, spotting the mischievous little individual peering out from the back window of his car, shooting at me with his imaginary gun for all he was worth, as his parents drove out of the car park, I was taken aback, troubled by the incredibly smug look on his young face. It was only then did my wife and I notice our car. It had four flat tyres!
