No Good Deed
I stopped at the grocery yesterday to pick up a few things. There was a gallon of milk and a heavy container of cat litter, so I took a cart to the car. As soon as I finished putting everything in the car, I heard the cart rolling away, heading toward a shiny car obviously parked where it was to keep it safe.
You anticipate, yes?
Setting off to chase the cart, I lost my balance and took a hard fall. From my left knee up to my left temple, I hit and then skidded across the parking lot. My suspicion is that I've cracked a few ribs, so I'm breathing deeply and coughing regularly to keep my lungs clear. Everything, everything hurts.
And the cart still hit the car.
