Reaping the Rewards

Remember my post about the Risks and Rewards of Being a Medical Research Subject? Well, one of the rewards I forgot to mention is that they tend to give you money. For example, during last week's testing they gave us $20. I feel weird about keeping it, since Malachi's the one who does all the work, so I give it to him to spend how he wishes.

Yesterday we had to pick up a prescription and as I'm getting him out of the car he says in his slow, careful way: "I have an idea. How about we go to the toy section of the Fred Meyer Pharmacy?"

"What do you want to do in the toy section?" I ask.

"Umm…. just look around."

Well. Guess what he bought with his wages?
