Default Spring has Sprung

Now that getting dressed doesn't take much longer than the trip, I've
resumed going to the grocery store on my bike.

The first trip, I learned that "put it in the cart loose" means "bag
it before you put it into the cart".

The second time, I learned that "put it in the cart loose -- I have to
re-pack it" means "use extra bags".

Now I remember: the proper command is "No bags please. Just put
them back in the cart loose. I have to re-pack it on my bike."

(All three sentences are required -- one would think that bag boys
were paid by the bag.)

I wonder whether it will work.

It's threatening rain and far from warm enough that I don't mind
getting wet. I think I'll drive today. We need bread, so I can stop
by Aunt Millies and get rid of surplus bags.

And then, afterward, they ask if you'd like help out to your car.

Ever thought of using the drive-up service on your bicycle?

No, but when I walk to the grocery store and they ask me whether
I'd like "help out", I think about asking whether they'd like to
carry some of the bags home with me. Never said so, though.
