We've had a lot of wonderful posts about big, exciting adventures. My adventures might seem small by comparison, but they are HUGE for me. On Saturday I had an urgent need for something that could only be found at the mall. I didn't worry about where I had to park, and was inside within a few minutes. True, I had to dodge lots of baby strollers and wandering texters, but people who are walking have to do that too. Several stores and a few tight squeezes between crammed together clothing racks later, I was happily waiting in line with all the other weary shoppers. I even got to have an enlightening conversation with a little girl who looked up at me and said, "Why you riding your bike in the store?" She was just curious so we talked about it for a minute and then talked about the ballerina costume she was holding.
Later that day I needed to make a quick trip to Walmart to pick up some thread. Before the TravelScoot there was no such thing as a "quick trip" to Walmart. If I was lucky enough to find a store scooter available and charged (good luck with that around the holidays!), it would have taken quite a while for me to get in and get what I needed. The whole trip from getting in my car at the house to arriving back home took 30 minutes -- absolutely amazing.
So yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, and I know because I saw him at the mall!
This qualifies as a Christmas miracle for me because without my scoot, I'd have never made it into the mall.
