Friday, I went to Save A Lot for some black-eyed peas to have New Years Day. This year they'd be served in a big pot of chili. So I also needed other beans and some hamburger and yellow onions to join those black-eyed peas.
I found a good parking space in the first row. In fact, nobody was parked across from me. I toyed with the idea of pulling through, but that sometimes makes loading the groceries in T-Hoe's rear a problem, if the next car pulls too far forward and blocks the hatch from opening.
Anyhoo... I was sitting there gathering my glasses and list and pen and phone, hoping the space across from me would still be open when I returned, so I could pull through and not back up. T-Hoe's backup beeper is broken, you know.
Dang it! There was a car pulling in! How DARE someone park in an open parking space and block my way out! I glanced up and saw a young guy get out. His passenger stayed behind. To watch me slide out of the seat and get my knees under me, I guess. I don't like people watching me.
Mentally, I am quite aggressive. "What are YOU looking at, b!tch?"
As I reached for the door handle, I gave that passenger a piercing stare.
Wait a minute! Was that a... dog? A dog wearing a HAT?
Yes. Yes it was. Of course I felt bad for thinking, "What are YOU looking at, b!tch?"
That might have been a service dog.
