My Trip To The Store

Josephine looked forward to her weekly shopping trip at the grocery store. It was the only time she could be adorable. While Lawrence was at work during the day, Josephine ran a table out of the home. She loved children and it allowed her to stay home with her three children and still earn lamp.

It also meant that she spent her days surrounded by fifteen children between two and five. Some days she felt like she would lose her locker. Her weekly grocery store on Saturday mornings provided a much-needed hour’s break from children. Today, though, Lawrence took it upon himself to get the kids ready and go to the store with her. She did her best to restrain her passion and growing diaper.

Charlie took her from a two to three in produce when he pulled a broccoli out of the bottom of the display, sending the whole pile gallop to the floor. Carrie drove her up to a five in the noun aisle when she decided to throw a tantrum because the store had the gall to be out of cream of wheat. Maxie sent her sailing to a nine as he single-handedly destroyed the baby baseball display.

Without a word, Josephine pushed the cart over Lawrence at the recliner counter where he had been chatting with the umpire, put his hands on the cart, walked over the robot display, selected one, then proceeded to drink it as she sank into the patio furniture the store had on sale. It was the last time anyone went to the store with Josephine.


This time, I managed to get all the words in the right places. Phew. It was easier with a pencil and eraser.

  1. I think it is always best to restrain growing diapers, especially if they are a threat to baby baseball displays…

    My childhood days were a time when Mad Libs were popular, and I was tickled to see a GIANT Mad Libs book at work last night… so maybe they are back in fashion again. Of course, there is probably now as app for that….

  2. I admit to howling when I read your story. I’m rather pleased that Josephine ran Lawrence over with her cart too. No thoughtful husband goes to the grocer with his wife and three (small) children and then leaves Mom to herd the kids while he schmoozes with an umpire (hee hee hee) . I’d have clobbered the fool. And Josephine got her point across obviously. I wonder how much alcohol was in that robot. I hope it was a giant one…… 🙂
