When you have been in "Quarantine" for several weeks you consider a trip to Trader Joe's a social outing
and that is what I was looking forward to on Saturday.
Getting ready for the family to come to dinner Sunday, so I had a list of a few things for the gathering
Off I went about 8:40 ( to arrive during the special hour for senior citizens)
Sunny day, top down on Sabrina and arrived at Trader Joe's in good time
no purse, no phone, no drivers licence, no money, no plastic
A driver at the car next to me, " sorry I don't have a phone"
Another driver / shopper and yes, with cell phone... I called hubby.
He was shopping at the hardware store but as soon as he finished he would scoot home and then pop up to Trader Joe's
Thank you !
Plenty of time to shop !
One more phone call to make sure hubby knew he had to stop for my purse
Kind T J's clerk ..and very sympathetic about being without my purse
Shopped and checked with one of the clerks about corned beef and cabbage.
Chatted with my favorite lady...she does not care for corned beef, but understands that when your son loves corned beef, mom cooks corned beef.
Since I finished strolling around at least twice I paused in front, and at least two checkers were ready for me but...
still waiting for $$
then, very cute clerk comes up and asks me what my favorite color is.
Well, I look at my blouse and sweater and mention that I am driving a red car and say.."maybe red"
before long, cute clerk brings a bouquet of red roses to me and says he is sorry for the bad start to my morning !
Did he know that I was using red white and blue ( staying patriotic for the month of July ) for my dinner ?!
All I can say.
I came home with a bouquet
and a recipe for cabbage
and at least one clerk who will remember me
( might not know my name, but knows my eyes -I am wearing my mask )
I live an exciting life
