My Shopping Cart Gets Stolen

with 5 comments


So, guess who it was that stole my shopping cart:
A. Regina Spektor
B. Victoria’s Secret lingerie model
C. Michael Caine in the role of Alfred Pennyworth
D. A smelly old lady that made me feel bad cause I was totally ready to yell at her but then she feigned memory loss or whatever and pretended like she never stole my cart in the first place, but merely misplaced it somewhere over by the paper products aisle.

Take your time, really. No pressure. I’m here all day.

Go lightly from the ledge, babe
Go lightly on the ground
I’m not the one you want, babe
I will only let you down

– “It Ain’t Me, Babe” by Bob Dylan

  1. I’m going to say choice D, though I do know what you would have preferred–well, any of those you would have preferred.

    Mmm sushi, I haven’t had it in months and I’ve been craving it for several of them.

  2. Sushi sounds great! You are practically salivating in panel one. Gotta watch your back in moments like that where your defenses are down. Pickpockets, Murderers, Geriatrics…they prey on the unobservant.

    I am making shortbread cookies today. Nom Nom over here!

  4. Tara: Mmm sushi. We should try to get some sometime soon. I just need to find enough couch change first. Spicy tuna!!!

    Bitsy: I never realized how sneaky an old person could be until this happened. Send me a cookie?

    Arlene: I will try to resist from now on. 😛

  5. Ha-ha! Something similar happened to me at the store, only I was the one who taking things out of a cart when this guy says “um, excuse me, that’s my stuff.” He was nice enough about it and I apologized and put his stuff back in the cart.

    I really thought it had been abandoned.
