It must have been my lucky day yesterday. Whenever I head to Wal-Mart, I get my hopes up. I get that excited feeling, the feeling that this trip will be different than all the other ones. We all do it. But it seems like every time, we all leave the same – disappointed.
But not last night!
I stopped by after work to grab some quick groceries, and as I exit the car I got my hopes up as usual. I hoped for the best, but I fully expected to leave the store discouraged, like so many other Wal-Mart runs. But this day was different!
Finally, finally, after dozens and dozens of Wal-Mart shopping trips – I get a cart with four working wheels!
Seriously! I didn’t get any pics, but I’m telling the truth, I swear! All the wheels worked. No “klunk klunk klunk” as I wander through the store, no horrible skidding, scraping wheel sound. No irritated looks from strangers as I struggle down the aisle. I know you probably don’t believe me, that I made it all up, but it happened. It was awesome.
Oh, new action figures? yeah, well, I didn’t find any of those. But the cart! Oh, the cart…
it was joyous.
