All the stores identified as offering groceries around here, Costco, Stop & Shop and Target are allowing people 60 years old and older the chance to shop early in recently stocked and disinfected stores. Disinfected, perhaps, but stocked is a misnomer, as many shelves remain as bare as they have been for weeks.
However, by visiting all three of these stores, I was able to get the items on our list, including some toilet paper for an elderly neighbor. So, as I once again try to inject a little levity into the situation, without making light of the facts, I offer a parody below. But first, as my one liner, I think I should add:
“Apologies to Robert Browning”
Oh to be in Target
Now with toilet rolls
And whoever waits near Target
Sees, the checkouts unaware
That the door marked only for handicapped
Round the corner was earlier unlocked
While the seniors sang behind wobbly carts
In Target – Now!
