We are hosting a cookout this weekend. I just got back from shopping. All the good stuff, heavy in the basket.
Perhaps I should preference the remainder of my remarks to point out that I am not fond of kids, as a group. Individual ones are okay, but as a group, in public, not one of my faves.
There was a little girl doing the grocery store dart thing, weaving in and out of aisles and other shoppers. I kept having to stop, not such a big deal, but with such a heavy cart, I really had to pull with my body to stop the momentum. After the third time, I had to sit down. I am super-aching now.
Of course, kid's mom was yelling after her progeny, "Kate-lynn, you stop it right now or Ima gonna swat you." KAte-lynn had no intention of stopping, and clearly no fear of her parent. And people wonder why I wear ear-plugs. And run over small children in stores.
