Temperatures today are pleasantly warm - not hot - and the sun is shining, so I thought I'd walk all my errands. I had to go to the Post Office, the bank, and the Piggly Wiggly for a few items.
I had a list of groceries to keep me on track: bread, buns, and barbeque sauce.
I made a fatal error when I walked into the store, however. I got a shopping cart rather than a basket. Within seconds I'd forgotten that I only came in for three items - items that would be easy to carry home - and I'd loaded the cart with bread, buns, barbeque sauce, paper plates, napkins, strawberries, grapes, a pineapple, two bags of potato chips, frozen french fries, and cheese.
As I was writing my check and chatting with the cashier, I remembered that I had walked. Oooops!
I told the cashier what I'd done, and that I'd need to make two trips to get my groceries home. The manager/owner heard me and said I could take the shopping cart and trundle all my stuff home, then return the cart later.
So I walked home pushing the Piggly Wiggly shopping cart, doubtless causing passing motorists to wonder what was going on. When I got home, I unloaded the groceries, then walked the cart back to the Piggly Wiggly.
I love The Pig!
