the whole wide world

Zibby, "Mommy, what's your favorite store in the whole wide world?"

Mommy, "Hmmm, I really don't know."

Zibby, "Mine is Hi-School Pharmacy."

Mommy, "Yes, that is a very cool store."

Zibby, "What's your second favorite store?"

Mommy, "Well, I really like antique shops."

Zibby, "Ohhhh...well, mine is Rofs" (Roth's)

So, to Zibby, the "whole wide world" is Silverton and there ain't nothin' better than good old Hi-School Pharmacy (think toys, crafts, candy, and an ACE ,hardware equipped with beef jerky and fish bait.) And Roth's...a Silverton "original" grocery store where everyone wears green aprons, you can wheel around a mini shopping cart (which more often than not slams into the back of mommy's ankles or even worse an unsuspecting elderly customer), and you can still ride the well worn giddy-up pony for just 25 cents.

No wonder these are her "favorite stores"...said with the classic Zibby lisp.
