Mom’s Shopping Story

I went to the Shoppette on Redstone Arsenal.  The Shoppette is a small store with only a hand full of cash registers to check out.

I had two items in my shopping cart.  I walked up to the cash register and the cashier asked me if I had already paid for my items.  I said, no.

Then all sorts of things started going through my mind.  What did she think I did, go to one of the other cash registers and pay then walk over to her cash register after paying for my items.

I also wondered what she would have said if I said, yes I already paid.  Would she have just let me walk out of the store even though I had not paid of my items.

They say there is always a first time for everything and I must admit this is the first time I have ever been asked if I had already paid for my items while waiting at the cash register to pay.

I just keep thinking about her and laughing.

Sorry Mom

Today is Mother’s Day, so I thought it would be a good time for me to apologize to my mom.

Mom, I am sorry for:

  • Hiding rubber snakes in the bed
  • Putting that fuzzy worm on your shoulder
  • Putting fish from the creek into our bathtub
  • All those times you had to visit the principle, because I got in trouble at school
  • Being extremely stubborn and ignoring everything you said
  • Putting a plastic spider in your hair
  • Hiding my brother in the shrunk
  • All those speeding tickets I go as a teenager
  • Being rebellious and obnoxious

It didn’t matter how much trouble I caused, how mischievous or reckless I behaved, you where always there.  You never abandoned me or gave up on me.  You are an awesome mom and I love you.
