I can totally relate. I love the peacefulness of Kroger’s or Scott’s at about 10 p.m. on a week-night. Just me and all the other asylum-seeking moms, and no boys screaming “Give me a lollipop!” “I want this!” “You’re mean!” Or, my personal favorite: “If you don’t buy this for me, you’re not my mommy anymore…” Great, kid, I’ll just leave you here in the store with all the other fruits and nuts until someone else buys you and takes you home. I’ll be back when that family returns you and Kroger’s tracks me down via my Personal Tracker (I mean “Shopper”) Card.

Has anyone else landed in a 24-hour grocery store late at night and debated not returning home? After all, it worked for Natalie Portman in Where the Heart Is…  Of course, she is very lucky she didn’t end up in a “The People of Wal-Mart” video.
