Returns A La Cart

By Beth Beutler
1     "I hate it when that happens," Grandma muttered under her breath.
 
2     We were pushing a grocery cart out to the van at the local Shoppers Mart. Every Tuesday, Grandma and I head to the grocery store to stock up for another week of meals. Since I am homeschooled, I am able to go with Grandma most of the time. Most of my friends can't understand why I enjoy going grocery shopping, but Grandma makes it fun. I help her with coupons, and then she gives me the money that is saved with them! When we get home, I help her put the items away, and then we sit down and figure out how much we saved. Grandma immediately gives me the money. Last week, I earned $5.00 from all the coupons I had cut out and organized for her!
 
3     Well, back to the story. Grandma and I came up to her minivan and noticed a shopping cart right next to it. As we got closer, we could see that it was touching the van and had possibly put a small scratch on the van.
 
4     "I really wish people would simply return the carts to the store," Grandma huffed.
 
5     I began to wonder why people didn't do that. I guessed it was because they were in a rush to go to the next place.
 
6     As if she had heard my thoughts, Grandma said, "I suppose they must rush to the next place. But it only takes a few minutes to walk the cart back, and it's good exercise."
 
7     Grandma is faithful about exercise. Everyone always comments about how young she looks. She and my mom look about the same age, which is a compliment to Grandma. (I'm not sure what it is for Mom!)
 
8     I remembered what Grandma always says-
 
9     Grandma then said, "Exercise is good for the soul and body!" Boy, I wish Grandma would stop reading my mind!
