Talking with the cashier

Tonight while we were at Kroger's Harrison had a conversion with the lady at the check out. This brought tears to my eyes. I mean he told her about the book he was getting, and what he was going to eat for dinner. Sure the lady did not know every word he said but she could pick up enough to have a conversation with him. This is a time during the shopping that we both usually tread. Well meaning people ask Harrison what his name is and how old he is etc. He acts shy and I speak for him. I have actually had cashiers tell me he was a big boy and he could talk for himself. This is one of the hardest things for me. But tonight was a great change.
