Ever notice Mitt Romney during his campaigns stops on TV? Watch him as he walks across that stage, he is absolutely graceful. He could be in the swimsuit competition at the Miss America Contest. Notice the fast and short steps,what grace ,and the wave, I can just see Miss Rhode Island gnashing her teeth ,nice walk Mitt.
I’m a overweight man and I’ve noticed in Wal Marts, most of the people in the Electric Scooters are overweight . At West Sacramento Superstore there are about 8 or 9 scooters. A blown knee has limited my walking, and yesterday I had to use one of the Electric Scooters, initially I was embarrassed.
I know what their thinking, because I have said it in my head
“Look at him, his big azz needs to be walking and put down that drumstick”
Afraid I was going to run into someone I knew, I wanted to pick up a few necessities and make a quick exit.
Not wanting to bring any attention to myself. Red switch on, let’s go, I immediately hit the wall… ok that was reverse forward is down-I got this. Moving forward, all systems go… until the power cord hit me in the back… Dammit to hell why didn’t someone un plug the f-ing cord shit! The cashiers are watching….with smiles in their eyes, one runs behind me to put the cord behind my seat.
Aleve, picture frame, mop and juice…I’m outta here.
Along the way, what ever shame I had was gone… That scooter turns on a dime. Its smooth and quiet.
Suddenly I’m cruising in the store , out for a Sunday drive.
Hmm, they have elongated toilet seats, that’s a good price for those tires. A bean bag , that would be perfect from propping my foot, omg- James Bond on Blu Ray- a clock radio that charges your phone that’s a good idea- Wow those are nice cribs -look at those are some nice baby clothes- wonder what they would charge for some deluxe wipers for the car?

I needed food, but it meant that I would have to stand… ah food can wait.
Time in store: one hour forty three minutes
Knee started to hurt, I forgot my picture frame and juice…. maybe later today…….
