Last night Tom and I had a BIG laugh while out shopping at an art supply store. After walking around a bit and loading up a bunch of "toys" for Tom, we walked to the front of the store to check out. I was holding a bunch of merchandise in my arms, and Tom was steadying himself with one hand on his cane and the other on a table. Next thing I know, I hear Tom say "Oh no". I turned to see his pants around his ankles on the floor! I was trying to put the items down and at the same time, hide him from a mother and her young daughter who happened to enter the store at that moment. Tom is not able to bend over, so he couldn't pull his pants up by himself. The cashier looked at us not quite knowing what to do (I don't think he'd ever been trained for that). Finally, we got the pants up and checked out. He couldn't keep them up without holding on to them. So, we walked out the door - me with the big bag on one arm and Tom on the other, and Tom holding his cane and hooking his other arm around mine, holding his pants up by his belt loop. What a sight to see!
Wow! Katie was not with us. She would have been so embarassed!
