I went to the grocery store last week, and I took my daughter with me. As you are well aware, the temperature outside was very hot, and that means the car was hot, and the seatbelts were hot - everything was hot. We entered the cool of the grocery store, picked out our items, checked out, got back into our very hot car, and drove home. After parking in our garage, I went to the backseat to help my daughter out of the car, but I froze in my spot - there were no groceries in the car.  I was thinking so much about the high temperature that I had left my groceries in the grocery bag in the middle of the store parking lot.  By the way, if I haven’t mentioned it already, it was very hot, and of course, I had ice cream in my grocery bag. So, we got back into the hot car and drove to the grocery store. I found out that a very kind citizen had taken my groceries back into the store, and they were waiting for me in the cooler (if you are the person who saved my groceries, thank you so much!).
