I was so excited about Mr. A fixing my shopping cart that I couldn’t wait to try it out. I grabbed up Katie and off we went. The cart worked wonderfully but as we started back home a loud clap of thunder made me jump and scream.
“A little bit of thunder so you scream? Like a girl? A little ten-year old girl!” Katie teased, quoting Doctor Who.
“It was loud and I didn’t expect it. You know I hate storms!” I huffed.
That was when it dawned on me. We were over a mile from home, it was thundering, and our umbrellas were hanging on our pantry door at home.
I looked up at the angry clouds overhead as the first drops of water fell. “I think we’re gonna get wet,” I announced. “I was so excited about the shopping cart I forgot to check the weather. Sorry!”
Katie grinned. “Oh well, that just means we won’t have to take a bath tonight Mom!”
And then the heavens opened. It didn’t just rain, it came down in buckets, so there we were, pushing our newly repaired shopping cart through the downpour, laughing like idiots.
We got some strange looks as we walked in the rain back home but we didn’t care. Our shopping cart was fixed and life was good. We even got washed in the process!
