Annie Blake grunted in a decidedly un-lady like manner as she lifted five plastic grocery bags from the trunk of her decade old Grand Am. It would have been easier to make two trips but, having spotted her father’s blue Taurus parked beside the garage a full three hours before he was due home, had her a bit worried.
She lugged the heavy bags up the two-step back porch and tried to fit the house key into the lock. No easy task as her hand was fighting the weight from five pounds of ground beef, a can of tomato juice and various other items from the small IGA, which she preferred over the larger combination department-grocery stores in the area. In her haste to get inside, it never occurred to her that setting them down for a moment would actually have saved some time.
