The Lonely Shopping Cart
It warmed my heart...
I walked another twenty feet or so and noticed a lone shopping cart out in the middle of the parking lot all by itself. I immediately felt this wave of sorrow for this lonely shopping cart but despite my feelings I walked right by it and continued home.
I didn't get far...
After another 30 feet or so I stopped. I turned around and eyed the shopping cart, alone in the cold rain. I glanced passed it and saw the two shopping carts together under the tree and thought to myself "it sure would be nice for that lonely shopping cart to be with it's friends."
I stood there for quite a while consumed with inner conflict. On one hand I knew it was stupid to move the cart... I mean... it's a shopping cart! A complete inanimate object! It has no feelings! But the logic could not penetrate and dispel the sorrow I was feeling for the stupid lonely cart!
I was sunk...
I walked back and with determination I moved the shopping cart under the tree with it's friends.
It felt good and I was satisfied:-)
A couple of years ago I ran into the following video and about lost my head laughing so hard. I have found comfort in this video, for it proves I'm not the only one that feels sorry for inanimate objects!
I AM NOT ALONE!
I just love you:) I seriously felt bad for the lamp and then just about dies laughing. I am seriously laughing hysterically and crying. You made my day.ReplyDelete
Hahahah that's awesome. I'm so glad:-) I laugh everytime I see it. It kills me haha... my family still makes fun of me for moving the shopping cart, I'm sure I'll never live it down... but I'm still happy I did and that's what matters:-)Delete
While I love to tease you about this it just shows that even all those tears ago before recovery and hope you were still a deeply caring person who had great compassion for things that were lost and alone.ReplyDelete
You've ALWAYS been that person. :-)
Oh my gosh!!!! It's not often I literally laugh out loud! What an unexpected ending!!! HahahReplyDelete
I am crazy with you. I assign feelings and gender to inanimate objects quite often.ReplyDelete
