This is lovely to read John, humour is a wonderful way to manage through your days. Also I am sure you are not the only care and cared for using it to keep the situation light.
Your situation in the supermarket has made me smile, the lady who nearly fell into the vegetables probably thought you was being very serious. I wish I had seen it :)
I hope there are other carers who would like to share their ways of coping and how they may use humour to manage too.
