On the coast today, it was dark and gloomy with frequent and periodic heavy rain most of the day. Temperatures hovered close to the 60 degree mark -- a little warm for the season.
A young mom was walking toward me from the mall pushing a carriage with a toddler. She had no cover from the rain.
I offered to cover her with my umbrella and stay with her as she walked to her automobile.
Well, the young woman only reluctantly allowed my assistance. I was prepared to stay with her and cover the child while she opened the doors and lifted the child into the car. But I was quite summarily dismissed. And I realized only later as I walked away that she was suspicious of the assistance.
So I wondered: what must your life be like if you cannot trust a 5 foot, 63 year old grandmother, who looks like this:
Oh. You caught me. I wasn't wearing my crown.
