Purple Rainboots

She wears purple rainboots and purple yoga pants to lose an argument with her child about the toy he wants.

From under her matching purple straw hat, a “no” turns into a “maybe next time” into a “we’ll come back tomorrow” into an “okay, I’ll go get my wallet, but this is the very last time.”

She doesn’t even try to argue when he demands a pizza, which she orders on a phone in a purple protective case.

She tells him they’ll go pick it up in twenty minutes, but he’s hungry now, right now, so she buys him a chocolate bar while they wait, buys herself one too, in a purple wrapper.
