The question was what should we do while we waited for Camden to get his hair cut. I had an idea. I knew Nona and Papa would say “No,” but I gave it a try anyway. “Let’s all go to Sunny Donuts, OK!” I said cheerfully, as though they would immediately accept. Ainsley was along for the ride, and she perked up, “Yeah, let’s get a donut!” Well, I knew a tie vote wouldn’t get us there, and I figured that we were two votes for and two votes against.
Surprise! I could hardly believe my ears when I heard both Nona and Papa reply, “OK, Solbit.” What has happened to them? They arrive in California and forget all about healthy eating?
Ah, I know why Nona said “OK.” She likes chocolate, and that’s what she ordered, a chocolate covered donut. Why did Papa say “OK?” I guess he just wanted a cup of coffee. So, we walked a few doors down from Camden’s barber shop to Sunny Donuts.
Ainsley got sprinkles on hers. Predictably, Papa got the boring kind, a plain donut. He even complained that it wasn’t plain enough. It had a little sugar glaze on it. He said, “I don’t like sugar. Why can’t they offer at least one donut without all that sugar?” Nona told him, “Stop being a grump, Papa, and enjoy your donut like the rest of us.”
Ainsley shared hers with me. She’s really generous, and I like to be with her. OK, we gotta go to pick up Camden from his barbershop.
I’m your friend.

- You may be asking yourself, “Who is Solbit?” Solbit is a fictional character, but she is a real plastic dinosaur, sent to us unsolicited in a package we ordered from Photojojo. So, she’s a plastic jurassic. Solbit is short for the four names given her by our grandchildren: Sparkle, Orangie, Lulu, Breakit. We tend to use her given names for when she’s been naughty. Thank you for visiting Tales of a Plastic Jurassic. Solbit likes company and hopes you’ll come back.
- You can learn more about Solbit at her About page and in the earlier posts, “Solbit: How I Got My Name” and “Solbit: How I Got to Travel.”
