Flat Stanley Goes Shopping

Grocery shopping is never a fun task, unless of course Flat Stanley comes along!

Nana always starts off in the produce section.  She loves her fresh fruit.  Flat Stanley loves fresh fruit too!  His favorite as you know is cantaloupe, so Nana bought a nice ripe one.

What’s your favorite Fruit?

While Nana was picking out some fresh herbs and getting carrots, Flat Stanley climbed up on the pineapple bin and began singing in a high pitched wail:

“Pineapple princess, he calls me pineapple princess all day, as he plays his ukulele on the hill above the bay.  Pineapple princess, I love you, you’re the sweetest girl I’ve seen.  Some day we’re gonna marry and you’ll be my pineapple queen.”

Nana didn’t even flinch.  She’s getting used to his silly ways.  She actually just continued shopping, shaking her head.  Other shoppers seemed to enjoy his singing, so he continued on.

Nana was three isles up when Flat Stanley thought of a trick.  He went up the next isle where Nana was heading, where the cereals were, he squeezed his body in tight next to Nana’s favorite.

When Nana came upon the cereal isle she was wondering where Flat Stanley had gone off to and was just about to turn around to go find him when she spotted her favorite cereal box.  She reached up to grab it and out popped Flat Stanley, making her shout in surprise!

“Flat Stanley!!  You got me!”  He’s so good at hiding in tight spaces.

Nana continued on and stocked up on milk and bread for the family.

As they were checking out and Nana was putting her groceries on the conveyor belt, Flat Stanley jumped onto the candy shelf.

“Pleeeeeease Nana, pleeease can I have one, just one?!” Flat Stanley asked in his voice that’s sweeter than candy.

Nana couldn’t resist his sweet voice. “Yes, you can have a candy bar,” she said.

Which candy bar do you think Flat Stanley selected?

Which one is your favorite?

Papa’s favorite is an Almond Joy, Nana’s is a Kit Kat, but Flat Stanley chose the M&M’s.  He likes the one’s without the nuts, because he’s quite nutty enough.

Flat Stanley left the store smiling with his bag of M&M’s in his hand.

I hope this finds you smiling too!

  2. William and Jamie are waiting for Elijah to get out of choir practice and we read Flat Stanley. So we all agreed Cascadian Farms cereal is the best. Will said “banana” and Jamie’s favorite is strawberries. We all agreed our local strawberries are delicious. They both asked when Flat Stanley would visit our house. Jamie asked me to call him. (sigh) Thank you for helping us through our stuck in moms car moments Nana. They also keep asking Who is Nana. She’s awfully cool.
