My mom does all her own stunts.
She does a lot of it and it's sheer joy to me.
My mom has been walking nearly every day since the 70's. While her peers wait in their geriatric rooms for meals on wheels, my mom marches down to the grocery store to purchase a few items for the soup she's brewing. Being the very Queen of All Things Thrifty, my mother would never purchase anything for full price if she could get it dented or bent or day-old. As luck would have it, the veggie bin contained the very things she needed- and for 50% off!
In line to pay for her discount goods, my mother got busy fumbling through her bag for the money she thought was in it. Lost in her panic, the man behind her meanwhile paid for her dented and wilty carrots. By the time my mother finished her fumble, the cashier was handing her some change and the transaction was complete. Flustered, my mother turned to the man behind her:
"Did you just pay for my groceries?"
"Ah, said the man, "I just threw in a looney".
Still flustered, and now embarrassed, my mother walked home to finish her soup, the stranger's change jangling in her pocket.
She still hasn't stopped laughing.
I like her attitude.
