parking lot

I pulled into the crowded parking lot at the Super Wal-Mart
Shopping Center and rolled down the car windows to make sure my
Labrador Retriever Pup had fresh air.

She was stretched full-out on the back seat and I wanted to impress
upon her that she must remain there. I walked to the curbbackward,
pointing my finger at the car and saying emphatically, 'Now you
stay. Do you hear m e?' 'Stay! Stay!'

The driver of a nearby car, a pretty blonde young lady, gave me a
strange look and said,

'Why don't you just put it in park?
