This week's grocery store story:
I took my first grocery cart, filled to the brim, over to the wide-aisled line in hopes of finding a semi-capable grocery clerk to tend it for me, while I went to go fill up my second cart. I found a young man, who I'm pretty sure was still in high school, who was willing to keep on eye on my first cart.
I came back with the second cart full, as usual, and a big grin on my face, "I'm back."
"Yeah, we were all wondering who's line you'd get into. I figured it would be mine," he said with some chagrin.
And me, without Keri Lynn to help ease his pain.
