A Day at the Outlet Mall

Well, I definitely have my strength back since completing all my cancer treatment. The following story is my proof:

Once upon a time there was a young woman named Laura. Laura was so happy that she didn't have cancer anymore. She was feeling strong and healthy. 

One day Laura went shopping with her daughter, Ashley, at the Houston Premium Outlet Mall. They were shopping for kitchen supplies for Ashley's new apartment. They entered the Pyrex and Corningware store and were amazed at the multitude of kitchen supplies! There were things they had never seen or heard of before! 

Laura and Ashley purchased a box of pyrex and the store clerk asked if they would like to pick up their purchase at the back door. Thinking that this would be easier than carrying the box through the mall, Laura agreed. 

Laura pulled her car up to the back door of the store. Ashley got out of the car and tried to open the door. It seemed to be stuck. Ashley knocked and there was no response. Ashley rang the bell and there was no response. Sensible Laura thought to herself, "The door is just stuck, I'll get out of the car and help Ashley pull it open." And so she did.

Laura grabbed the door handle and gave it a strong pull. In that instant she heard the store clerk shout, "Don't do that!" It was too late. Laura was already in motion. The door locking pin bent 90 degrees, the door swung open, and the store alarm started blaring throughout the mall and across the parking lot. 

Laura and Ashley stood there, eyes wide, mouths agape. 

"I'm sorry," Laura stammered. 

"You broke it." said the store clerk.

Ashley grabbed the box of pyrex, put it in the back seat. Laura and Ashley jumped in the car and sped out of the parking lot and away from the sound of the screeching alarm.

The End.
