A gallon of milk is heavy!


Here's how I think it went down. This young lad's mother works at a Chinese restaurant close to a grocery store. His mother gave him some money, asked him to run to the store and buy a gallon of milk. This he did and now he's on his way back to the restaurant, money and receipt in one hand, and that very heavy gallon of milk in the other.

That is sort of the awkward stance I have when carrying heavy bags of milk!

Funny... but still a great candid shot.

I think we all do that, sometimes when I have a load of unnecessary stuff in my purse I walk like that.

I well remember trying to lift a gallon of milk as a little kid. It was heavy! Thanks for the memories.

Thankfully I never had to carry a gallon because we don't have gallons of milk. We have litres and half-litres! Sweet shot!

Very nice street shot!
A gallon of milk is too much for this little boy! Hopefully is the distance between the store and the restaurant not so great.

For boys pretty hard. They learn to work from childhood. Maybe that's good. Many greetings !!!
