~“Thank God they didn’t start a fire”~

I wanted to screech out in my best Barney Fife, Mayberry Deputy voice, “Line-breaker,” but I held it back.

It did make me think about the AARP card. Maybe it entitles you to break line anywhere you want.

One of the managers opened up another line and let me go first. I figured he either saw what happened to me or didn’t want to risk the wine and cheese announcement.

I was happy.

As I was walking out of the store, the line-breaking, probably from New Jersey lady was still waiting in her line. I couldn’t help it, I had to do it. I did the “line-breakers never win” dance with my cart and clicked my heels in the air.

One of these days, I’m going to break something (a leg or ankle).

With the time falling back an hour, there were no excuses for not making it to church on time the next Sunday morning. I did, the pastor preached a bang up sermon and we came home.
