I looked over at the Annie's, and continued to push my cart in the opposite direction I was looking, as I thought whether I should get some or not.
I felt my cart nudge something.
I looked over, and everything started going in slow motion, as a cardboard display of foil oven bags started to teeter.
As the display fell over, I said, "Oh, sh*t!!!"
And I looked up to see a young-ish mom pushing her toddler in a cart, standing right there.
I managed to choke out, between giggles, "I'm so sorry!! I didn't mean to say the s-word!"
She said, "That's ok," and started to laugh.
We both stood there for a minute, cracking up.
I said, "I should take a picture!"
She said, "Want me to take one of you in it?"
I said, "Yeah...well, no, that's ok. This will do."
She continued on down the aisle, and I took this.
The offending cart, and the stupid oven bags that were not placed in a very good spot, given the narrowness of the aisle and the large size of the grocery carts at this particular grocery retailer
I tried to put it back together, but I couldn't figure it out, and I didn't want to do more damage than I'd already done, so I just set the bottom part upright and continued on my way. I had to walk back down that aisle later, since in my embarassment and cracking-up-ness I had forgotten to get olive oil. The display was just as I left it. I wonder how long it will take for someone to notice it is on the floor?
At least I didn't knock over a wine display, like my sister did once. Thank the Lord for small blessings, anyway.
