    to walk up it to get to the market Once inside she headed straight to the frozen section She had everything already at home and just needed to get the main star of the holiday meal She found the turkey that was perfect a 20 pound bird She struggled to lift it into her cart but Granny viewed herself as a tough old bird and didn t bother to get anyone to help her Besides she was in a hurry to get back home it was almost dinner time for Snickers Granny heaved as she tried to lift the bird She did a double take on the poundage It felt much heavier than twenty pounds or was it that Granny found it increasingly more difficult to do everyday chores She remembered when her son pleaded with her Mom if you were in a retirement home they would shuttle you to the grocery store and help you with your shopping Yes on their schedule not mine She butted back So getting Life Alert was a happy compromise Granny remained living independently in her own home and her family had peace of mind that help was a button push away if Granny needed it THUD The frozen beast crashed down into the metal cart Well that was easy enough Granny said breathing heavily as she raced to the checkout line One of the check out boys offered to help put the bird in the car once he was finished helping another patron Thank you but I have to get going I ll be alright She assured the young man and off she went When she reached the parking lot she pulled the cart to the rear of the car so she could put her grocery bag in the truck She fished for her keys in her purse found them and opened her trunk She turned to put the holiday meat in when she noticed the cart was gone It was not only gone but going further away and fast The cart started rolling down the slope of the parking lot Stop Granny yelled chasing after it The grocery bag handles that held her holiday beast waved to her like happy travelers waving good bye as their vacation cruise sailed off Luckily the check out boy who had offered to help her earlier witnessed the bird s great escape and ran after the cart He caught it quickly but was too far away to catch Granny Granny s sudden sprint had weakened her legs and although she had slowed from a run to a walk she still ended up falling The check out boy ran to her Are you alright He asked trying to help her up My hip hurts I think I may have bruised it She answered back while telling him that when an elderly person falls they should not be moved until the paramedics arrive to check them for any broken bones Granny reached into her purse and pulled out
