Shopping with Grandma

One arm holds 
A pink plastic purse
The hand attached 
To the that arm 
Is grasping onto
Grandma's soft hand
That hand is swinging
Back and forth happily
The fingers on the other hand
Are following along behind
Touching the soft fabric
Of the pretty clothes
Suddenly both hands stop moving
The fingers tracing the fabric
Grab hold of a
Beautiful blue shirt
The face attached to
The little fingers
Turns to Grandma
And gives a sweet smile
Grandma giggles
And grabs the shirt
Grandma starts moving
Towards the check out counter
The shirt is placed on the counter
Grandma places a big beige bag
On the counter beside it
She reaches her hand inside the bag
She pushes aside 
A lipstick container
Old tissues
Crumpled receipts
A small blush container
Chocolate candy wrapers
Pictures of all shapes and sizes
Her cell-phone
A plastic look-a-like cell-phone
Finally she finds 
What she was looking for
A wallat full of
10's and 20's
She places a 20 on the counter
She buys the shirt
Picks up the girl
And they skip off to the car
After a long day of shopping
