Shopping Trip

Run to the store

After work.

Pick up a few

From my mini list.

Overstuff my

Carry basket.

Checkout line

Ringing out.

Look behind,

There’s quite a line!

Seems I arrived

At the perfect time!

Feeling successful,

And compassionate.

Smiling,

Make some room

For the gal’s heavy things

Behind me.

Bagged up

Payment made

Off I start to go.

An Ol’ neighbor

Shouts a sweet hello.

I answer back

With a “How are you?”

Quick exchange.

Life

And a grocery store

In a small town.

Not one person knew

I conquered

A panic attack

To be there.

Kind Regards

and # winning – K

Awkward

  1. This is the story of my life at the supermarket. You captured the moments! And here’s a tip. When I’m waiting on a long line to pay, I pick up a copy of People Magazine and read it until it’s my turn to load my food on the conveyor belt. At least I get in a little pop culture instead of feeling completely frustrated.
