I was working at my Aunt Ida’s Grocery store today with my brother Randy. We were bagging groceries for Mrs. Chaddum and she had like, three bags with a bunch of canned goods. Randy asked to help her out with her groceries. About an hour later he comes in and was covered in sweat. My mom, Dolores started laughing. Randy gave us all the evil eye, and said “I walked her all the way home! Then she made me put the cold stuff away and change a light bulb!” Whenever we make grocery deliveries, that happens a lot. Small towns you gotta love the people.
Aunt Ida’s Grocery is an old-time grocery store. Me, Randy and Mom all work there. It is so much fun, we are constantly playing pranks on each other. Well, they are fun except when we get Aunt Ida by mistake. Lol. In the meat market there is a walk in cold box where they keep the dairy and it has two side window like doors. My brother and me hid in there (it was so cold! What were we thinking?) We had this robot arm with suction cups on the fingers. We were waiting for my mom to reach in the cooler window and we were gonna grab her. Well, guess you can figure who we got instead, yep it was Aunt Ida. She screamed, and we got onion detail for a month. Yuck!!!
You all should keep a journal of funny things that happen and memories. You may want to write a book someday or publish your journal. Either way if you write them down you can share them with your kids one day. Then they can see how cool you were. Actually, I plan on still being cool when I’m 90. LOL
Have a Blessed day and don’t forget to thank God for the fun things in your life. He gave you the laughter.
