Grocery shopping: teetering on the edge of stupidity stage

Fortunately I didn’t have to go up or down any hills today; the heavy cargo load got squirrelly enough at low speed that I wouldn’t have wanted to climb any serious ramp in the bigger ring (normally if I’m desperate I can kick the chain off that ring and onto the alpine ring – remember that the mountainhack doesn’t have a front derailer because I woefully misplaced the pusher mount – but the failure case means the chain overshoots and flops onto the bottom bracket. This would be bad with a loaded truck trying to hold me back.)
