Walking down an aisle in one of our local grocery stores I'm busy checking things off my list one by one. Next item crushed pineapple. I have been wanting to make one of our favorite but rarely made desserts for quite a while already but keep forgetting to get one of the key ingredients. Today will be that day.
I spot the pineapples up ahead but have to wait on a mother and her teenage daughter to choose which type they want. The daughter is standing patiently waiting with her hands folded nicely on top of each other on the handle of their shopping cart.
The mother continues to read the labels on different cans and finally selects the one she wants, glances at her shopping list while stepping back and dropping her can of pineapple into my cart.
Her daughter gasps a horrified, "Mom!"
The mother quickly realizes what she did and we both burst out laughing. The poor teenager wasn't so amused and looked as if she would have loved nothing better than being able to vanish from sight after having been totally mortified like that.
I'm glad I'm out of the uncomfortable teenage phase of my life where parents seem to constantly embarrass me. Life is too short to not find the humor in things!
