Well if is such a nice day I had to get out at lunch. I decided to stop at the grocery store to pick up something for lunch. Took about a minute for me to remember why I hate going out at lunch time --- all those seniors!!!
I had the lady who had to stop just inside the door to look at something so she blocked the whole entrance. The one who was stopped 5 feet in front of her. The one pushing her cart right toward me - I felt like a bullseye. The one at checkout ahead of me who was telling the cashier what to put in each bag. The one behind me who reached in front of me to grab a bag while I was paying. And the one sitting in front of the register having a cup of coffee and blocking the aisle. Oh and don't forget the one in the parking lot who almost ran into me because he had to get into that space -- guess the other 10 empty ones weren't quite right.
As I drove back to work it occurred to me that I would rather be physcially challenged than mentally challenged (read senile). I know we are all going to get old someday. It's just that physical challenges can be dealt with while old age just won't get better.
Sometimes it's a simple thing like a trip to the store to make you realize how good you really are!!!
