Yesterday I went to the grocery store and spent about 40 minutes grocery shopping. I didn't have the children with me, so I was enjoying being able to take my time and not grab things as quickly as I could off the shelves. I go to check out, everything was scanned, groceries were bagged and placed back in my cart, when it became time to pay. I opened my purse......no wallet! I dug through again and again hoping that it would magically appear, but I forgot it at home! I was so embarrassed! The clerk put my cart aside and said I could come back.
Driving home, I was debating on just leaving the cart and not returning at all. But then I would never be able to shop at that store - at least not for awhile. What were the chances I could avoid that? Slim. I swallowed my pride, raced home, retrieved the wallet, and returned to the store. I still might not shop there for awhile until the sting of my embarrassment wears off.
What is the point of this story? I have to run 2 miles today and I know that even if I do something to embarrass myself, it probably won't top yesterday!
