Stories from the Chocolate Aisle

Stopped at a store on my way back home, to buy milk,busy crowd rushing in & out of the store,amidst all that I see an old couple making their way slowly into the store, he bent with age,perhaps has Parkinsonism, is trying to get a hold of his walking stick as he makes his way into the store, she with her walker pausing & looking at the crowd & then at him, to see where he is, me… behind both of them pushing my cart.The candy aisles are full, now that Halloween is pretty close,man slowly moves to the chocolate aisle, picks a big bar of dark chocolate & waves it to her above the crowds, grinning ear to ear, she slowly makes her way towards him giggling like a sixteen year old
