I took the girls out to Woodfield Mall to meet daisy_knotwise at Red Robin for dinner after her session with janmagic. I got the world's best parking space in front of Macy's, which was good. Unfortunately, once we got into the mall proper, Katie set off at a faster pace than Julie could manage and vanished into the distance.
When I didn't find her at the restaurant, I became severely worried and called Gretchen, who was just parking the car and told her that we had a problem and that I'd meet her at a particular junction inside the mall.
And just then, Katie wandered up and said, "Where were you?"
Yes, dear. That's pretty much what I was thinking.
I like the fact that Katie's independent. This was a bit too independent.
