I went to costco today to pick up a few things. We were done with check out and headed out the door when Em announced she had to GO. I could tell that she needed prompt attention from the wiggly dancing she was doing so I did a 180 and weaved to the back corner of the store as quickly as I could pushing the overloaded cart. There was a line up of carts to use the facilities so I had to ditch my cart with the buddy inside and trust in the fellow mother of 3 to keep and eye on him. Meanwhile Em and I (plus the mothers daughter) ran to the front of the line banking on some mercy for a dancing 3 year old… all went well.
We were heading back out of the store when I had to stop… oh no… I turned back to look at the line. I just couldn’t go wait in that line plus I was pretty sure it was too late already. I slowed down my pace and continued walking towards the door in sort of a duck walk.
Maybe no one will notice.
I had plenty of stuff I needed to load in the car. It was hot outside but I think I was sweating for another reason. There was a line up of cars through the parking lot waiting for spots. In other words, I had an audience. I tried bending over as carefully as possible to get the massive package of toilet paper from the bottom rack of the cart. I took a sneak peak… yup, bright red! Darn it!
Sigh, I guess my other 200 errands will have to wait.
What can I say?? I have leakitis.
