For some odd reason I am suffering from horrific PMS this month. Small things that I would ordinarily roll off are getting to me. Even my mother is driving me bonkers. Maybe it’s the “b” word(as in busy) or the lack of light at 7:50pm that is messing with my hormonal balance?
This afternoon, mama said she wanted to go to the store. I said ok, we will go after we pick up Sam from school. At 2:35pm she was in the car and ready to go. I opened the screened door to inform her I wasn’t going to leave until about 3pm.
Me: Sam doesn’t make it to the parking lot til about 3:15. What is your hurry to get to the store?
Mimi: Candy Corn. I need some candy.
Me: Well, let’s go now since we have a bit of time!
Mimi: I need three bags.
When we get into the Boutique Bi-Lo, mama finds a buggy to lean on, heads for the candy aisle, and I go fetch milk and OJ. I never knew that my mother drank so much OJ and Diet Coke. Anyway, we find a short line at the 15 item EXPRESS lane.
Guess what! Some woman was front of us with 15 reusable bags–and believe me she wanted her credit, and $250 worth of groceries. The poor check out dude caught me on the wrong day. When the lady left, I asked him if he/she realized this was the EXPRESS lane?…He told me he is not supposed to say anything. The customer is always right, I suppose. I caught the manager on the way out to let him know this is why I shop at Publix. Boutique Bi Lo is so much closer, but it is worth it to drive just a bit further.
Mimi and I got into her Turbo Car, opened up that bag and enjoyed the candy corn.
Thanks for listening.
