Penalty Box

Oops!  Looks like someone got a time out.  Hopefully, you'll use this time wisely, to think about what you did.  Yes, it's a bit embarrassing, but someone's got to be the guinea pig, so it might as well be you.  Next time, try to set a better example for the little carts, won't you?

Stealers Wheel

Well, now you're *really* stuck. How did you even get here in the first place?

Life in the Fast Lane...

...or not.  

Take your time, Mr. Cart.  Every step counts, so take a break if you need it, but keep on keeping on.  (And if that's your pee spot behind you, don't worry -- just remember to stay hydrated.)

Seis de Mayo

Looks like someone did a bit too much celebrating last night....

Hotel, Motel, Holiday Inn

"I said one, two, three, four -- tell me Wonder Mike, what are you waitin' for?
I said a hip hop the hippie to the hippie
The hip hip hop, a you don't stop
The rock it to the bang bang boogie say up jumped the boogie
To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat...."

Oh, I could go on and on, Wonder Mike (and Big Bank Hank and Master Gee).  Those guys really get me going.  I mean, the really good stuff just *never* gets old, right?

Forbidden Love

What's up, Romeo?  Hey there, Juliet.  I don't know how you two met, but I sure hope that you can keep up your romance, despite hailing from competing families. No one ever said that love is easy -- or glamorous -- but it makes the world go round, so keep on keepin' on.  (Oh, and is that a bun in your oven, Juliet?)  Stay safe and happy, you two lovebirds.

Movin' On Up

Nothing says spring like moving to a new pad and starting fresh.  Oh, little cart, what's the reason for your move?  Was it a nasty breakup?  An unbearably messy roommate?  Noisy upstairs neighbors who allow their little ones to endlessly roll their tiny, squeaky wheels at all hours of the night?  Perhaps you're new to town and hoping for your big break?  

Whatever the reason, I hope it works out just as you planned.  I hope your credit is solid and you get the apartment of your dreams.  Change is good for all of us, little cart, even if we're only living vicariously through you and your adventure....

Stayin' Alive

Time to strut?  If you don't have it, then make it.  After a long week of taking care of everyone else's needs, it's good to blow off some steam.  Shine up those rims and put on your new, avocado green suit; the night is young and you never know who you might run into....

I Had a Dream

Well, not exactly a dream, but I dreamily remember growing up in a time when grocery carts lived at the grocery store (and in the parking lot).  Now, it seems like everywhere I look, they're living on sidewalks, on people's lawns and on random curbs.  Has life gotten so bad at the stores that they're forced to take to the streets?  Are they plotting a takeover?  Do I have too much time on my hands?  These are all interesting questions to ponder.  Meanwhile, I will continue to document my encounters with these strange and beautiful creatures outside their natural habitat....
