Long Lines at Jordan's (Photostory)
As usual, all the shoppers have ended up at the register at the same time. Roy has started bagging to help get the customers out quicker.
The McGraws are holding up the line.
"Mommy, I want to do it." (William)
"Let me help you. We need to hurry." (Kate)
Roy, the manager, is on the verge of going over to help speed them up, but he just anxiously looks on.
Meanwhile, Chad is a little distracted.
"Honey, I can't talk right now. I'm in line at the grocery store. (pause) I'll call you when I get in the car." (Lynn)
"The doctor said she's fine. I'll tell you the rest when I get in the car. (pause) Okay, bye" (Lynn)
The Jordans have arrived.
"Honey, the best place for her is in the cart, otherwise we are going to be chasing her all around the store." (Adele)
"What kid doesn't want to drive the car shopping cart?" (Mike)
"Okay, but you have to keep an eye on her." (Adele)
"One more thing." (William)
"Yep, we can't forget the air freshener." (Kate)
Angelina is more than a little ticked with the McGraws. I can't tell you guys what's going through her mind. It's a little R-rated.
"Hand me my purse, so I can get my wallet." (Kate)
Hmmm, Mike seems a little preoccupied as Sydney takes off running.
We should have known. Mike better not let Adele catch him looking this way.
"Thank you guys." (Kate)
"Well hello cutie pie." (Roy)
Lisa enters the store with her two kids in tow. Looks like little Chad (what are the odds that both Chads would end up in the same place) has a lollipop. Probably a way to keep him happy while she shops.
While Lisa gets the baby situated, little Chad makes a beeline to the red car.
"There you go. We have to keep those little legs covered. It's a little chilly in here." (Lisa)
"Mike, what kind of ice cream do you want?" (Adele)
Adele notices that Mike has already had to retrieve Sydney, but she doesn't comment about it. Inside, she is saying "I told you so" to Mike.
Before Mike can answer, Adele turns after hearing her name.
"Hey Adele. How are you?" (Lisa)
"Hey Lisa! I'm fine. How are you and the family?" (Adele)
"We're great." (Lisa)
Mike notices that little Chad has abducted the car cart.
I don't think Chad sees it quite the way Sydney does.
"Honey, pick an ice cream, so I can get out of this cold freezer."
"Get the butter pecan." (Mike)
"Okay, and let Chad keep that cart." (Adele)
As you can see, Jordan's grocery store stays busy. Mike reluctantly let Chad keep the cart. Angelina finally got checked out, and big Chad was all too happy to wait on her.
