My boys really missed out,
as far as shopping carts go.  When they
were small, there were no options while shopping with Mom; they just had to sit
in the cart and holler a little bit.

But now…what riches!  What glory! 
I can see the gleam of power in the eye of those children who today get
to drive the car attached to his mom’s shopping cart.  What joy! 
What triumph!  My boys would have
been in 7th Heaven.

Now shopkeepers have just
upped the ante on shopping cart competition: 
the video/TV cart.  Yes!  At a super-Kmart this week I saw a rental
shopping cart that has a television attached, presumably with movies or
some-such for your discerning child.


Just makes you want to turn the clock back, doesn’t it?
