I went to the supermarket on my own today.

That's right, I went out in public, totally unsupervised.  There's no way that could end badly, is there?

I was fine until I started to get tired and sore.

That happened a little faster than usual, because I was pushing the trolley.

Once everything was in the trolley, I was more than relieved to line up at the checkout. I waited patiently for my turn.

When I was finally at the head of the line, the checkout operator looked at my trolley and just said: "That's more than 15."  I hadn't realised I was in the express lane.

I went on to another long line and had to wait again.  Since my hips, knees and ankles were already hurting, standing in line was quite painful.

At last I made it to the carpark.  When I got home, I found my son had arrived before me so was able to take the shopping inside.

All I had to get from the car was my handbag and .... no walking stick.

I can remember having it as I pushed the trolley to the car. After that?  I have no idea whatsoever.

I rang the shopping centre, and it hasn't been found and handed in.

It looks like a need to go shopping for another stick now. I'll wait until someone's free to go with me.


  1. Sorry for the loss of your stick, that sucks ! Claire

  2. Sorry that happened :( I hope you have someone to go with you next time.


Thanks for being part of the conversation.
