Tiny Town is closed.
What? Why? The Horror!
I just discovered it and now it is gone. I can only blame the Recession and the owner of the building who no doubt raised the rent or some anonymous parent who sued them and bankrupted them. Who knows what happened?
We are devastated. We had to talk about it all the way home.
"Mommy, Tiny Town is closed?"
"Yes, closed forever, Lukie."
"Why is it closed, Mommy?"
"I don't know, Gracie."
"Did they go somewhere, Mommy?"
"I don't think so, Lukie. They just closed."
"Oh, no, Mommy! No more jumpies!"
"I know, Love. It will be okay."
"But Mommy, where are the jumpies?"
"Mommy, can we play at Tiny Town?"
"No, sweetheart, they are closed."
"Mommy, can we go to Old McDonalds?"
"And get chicken nuggets and trench tries?"
"Yeah! And play on the climbing thing and go down the slide?!"
"I'm going to have dip with my chicken nuggets."
Maybe they won't miss Tiny Town as much as I will, after all.
