She went to the store for carrots

Carrots (Shelby Nichols Adventures) - Colleen Helme

. . . Because you can't make potato soup without them.  But it's pouring rain and there's no close parks and by the time you make it to the door you're dripping.

 

All this for carrots.  And it's still raining, and suddenly you think Hostess Cupcakes.   MMmmm. And Diet Coke.  Etc.

 

So you get to the checkout lane and you get the smirk from the cashier as she checks out your items.

 

"Carrots, celery, Diet Coke, cupcakes, and potato chips.  Then she gave me one of those knowing looks while she scanned the Twizzlers, the Cheetos and the candy bars,"

 

I have totally done this.
