In the store today were also grown-up women wearing fleece pajamas, one woman wearing a strapless sundress, with others wearing shorts and jackets at the same time. At 50 degrees, I need a jacket!
The woman and I were at the banana bin and I told her that I wanted both green and yellow bananas because my husband, brother, and I eat a banana daily and we have totally different desires in bananas. I like bananas hard, barely ripe, Gerald likes them ripe, and Les likes them very ripe, flecked with brown spots; thus I need to buy various degrees of banana ripeness.
We continued our conversation at the bin of watermelons, discussing fine points of watermelon selection. I said, "Wow! These are cheap!" As she began struggling to pick up a watermelon from the bin, I said, "Let me get that for you." She said she wanted four. As I plopped four melons in her cart, I asked if she had someone at home to help her. She said that the family would be coming in the afternoon. I followed her to her car and loaded the melons and the remainder of her groceries in her car.
She said, "That's your good deed for today." I said, "It's my second; I was doing the shopping for a friend of mine."
