Walk for me Mitt and Electric Scooter Adventures….

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? (back to automotive)   Paula Deen Cookware.

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…….

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
