The future famous film director and the future restaurant critic cannot believe their luck.
They have stumbled upon a kiosk dazzling with rhinestone-spotted bangles and a rainbow of Indian scarves.

"I LOVE these," she says with a sudden intake of breath as she reaches for one shiny thing after another.
Her 11-year-old accomplice nods her head in agreement, but she is speechless as she runs her hands over a display of rhinestone-dotted bracelets.

They touch everything.

They look at me hopefully.
Being "future," their chosen careers are not in what you would call the salaried stage.
It is my money we will be spending today.
