Yes, the “little feminine member of the family” is going to enjoy a taste of her future adult life – pushing around a shopping cart made out of a tin can. Do you think anyone ever made this? And if they did, would a kid actually take it to the store? You’d be laughed out of the Piggly Wiggly for that.
But maybe not. Maybe her poor mother is out there dragging a cart made out of an old oil drum or something.
That girl is definitely gritting her teeth, though. Can’t say I blame her, do you?
