Shopping with Lucy 3
free of the cigarette butts, a man walking by offered me a cigarette, saying, “I know what you’re going through. I once tried to quit myself.”
I finally managed to get me and her relatively clean. The stroller rental wanted to charge me extra. They said they would have to have the stroller steam cleaned. I had already bought three dresses and a pair of shoes, because she was stuck to them, so i gave my last three dollars to the rental clerk and headed for the parking lot.
When we arrived home, Lucy’s grandmother was so glad to see us she gave Lucy a Popsicle. Lucy licked it a few times, then laid it in my lap and crawled up in grandma’s lap for a nap.
