WEMon: June 23 – The Shopping Shuffle
Why Shopping Carts Are Necessary
We have a problem in our home.
Neither of us likes to go shopping at all.
Usually, my husband goes, but sometimes we both do.
We need a shopping cart. There’s no way around it. I can sum up why in just two words:
You’re walking around a store with people banging into you from all sides, front and back,with large metal objects and if you fall, you’ll get run down by several.
That doesn’t take into account the driving kind, which will bump right over anyone stupid enough to be in their path, for the latest bargain.
They are defense weapons.
If you don’t have one, you die.
If we go down an unexpected aisle, it’s to get away from folks like you.
We hide until you’ve flown past, and if we happen to find an unadvertised special, we “might” buy one or two.
But, that’s not why we’re there.
If we had a tank, we’d use that.
But since there are only shopping carts, we’ll take what we can get.
So should you.
They’re life savers, nothing more, nothing less.
