overheard

Today I went to the DI on my lunch break. There was a really old woman looking at the books too, kinda blocking my view of the books. She was adorable so I didn't mind too much. Bright white curly hair, eyeshadow and mascara even though she had to be pushin 85. She stood up suddenly and turned around and said to an elderly man "Make yourself useful darling, carry my books" and he smiled and took her books and continued to watch her look for more.

I giggled out loud.

When I am 85 I better have a husband to drive me to thrift stores and carry my books.

That's so sweet! That reminds me of Grandma Jensen and how Grampa would follow her around the bazaar carrying all the quilts and slippers and dish towels that she had bought. I know he would give anything to carry her quilts again. I wish, hope and pray for a special man that will happily carry your books...

I would be honored to carry your cookbooks, well unless it was a punishment similar to Atlas's.
