I thought about you guys today...

...when I saw a woman riding down the sidewalk with one hand on the bars and the other trailing behind her, gripping, gloveless (it's late Dec in Michigan), the front of a supermarket shopping cart.

While I admired her determination and ingenuity, I really felt delighted to know there are several, much better ways to accomplish such a task as hauling the groceries home! I'm thankful for that too.

I can't help thinking that someone who does it that particular way is not doing it voluntarily.

I'm still glad she's out there doing it. And I hope one day she'll suddenly realize that it's fun.

But I'll bet she doesn't think so now.

If my neighborhood is any indication, no it wasn't.
