walmart friday night 6 - 7.30pm

  • mother talks on cell phone. tells, presumably father, that they will be home soon. daughter continues to look at more merchandise. she is happy with herself and her new pair of glasses. she trots off following her mother.
  • pregnant mother totes a cart behind her. son of 6 or 7 hangs on the front of the cart, swinging his body back and forth causing the cart to go crooked.
  • 2 brothers, 9 and 11, have just got new packs of gum. they try to open them. the older one dances while he is opening it. he saunters on ahead.
  • the 7 year old has a very indignant look on his face as he carries his toy away from the register. his father calls after him, 'Hey, Dylan,' rather quietly. if the son heard his father, he has ignored him and continues to walk farther away from the register and turns right towards the exit.
  • Even the four year old son has the same posture and walk of his father who must look older than he is with a son so young.
  • the 13 year old gangly granddaughter bought a small gift for her grandmother, who is accompanied her. the girl hands the plastic grocery bag off to her grandmother and says 'Here.' The grandmother accepts it with a small grin.
  • the middle-aged woman and her mother leave the store. the daughter is pushing the cart filled to the top. You can see how the middle-aged woman will look in 20 years. her face will mirror her mother's face now.
  • the four year old brother and six year old sister dance and play on the floor. clapping their hands. the brother looses his balance and falls, but catches himself with both hands flat on the floor. his sister ignores him and twirls around.
  • the older couple must look older than they are. her arm is locked in his, as if they were walking down the aisle again. they slowly waddle to the exit speaking softly to one another.
