Grocery Encounter

I was in the produce section of my local HEB grocery store yesterday when I saw one of those things that help keep life interesting.  
A man had a young girl - 3 or 4 - in the baby seat of his shopping cart.  The main area of the cart contained a large cardboard box that he was filling with lettuce - all kinds of lettuce, iceberg, leafy, red top and romaine - and he was loading it up by the double handfuls.
I stood and watched, wondering if he was going to leave anything for me to buy.  When he finally backed away, I said, "Excuse me. I have to ask.  What kind of party are you throwing, anyway?"
He smiled, nodded to the little girl in the basket and said, "It's for her Tortoise."
