So today, hubby and I decided to blow the stink off and went to our local mall to walk around. "Blow the stink off" is an expression we use when we need a change of scenery or to get an attitude adjustment. It is a rainy day and we both were feeling a little discouraged over general principles. So off we went. Oh my. We pulled up behind THIS car while at a stop light...
Now seriously, I would be afraid to drive that car around town. That's all I'll say about it right now.
Once inside the mall, of course we visited the Apple store first. Yes, we touched all the forbidden fruit. I made hubby explain all the things that started with "i". You know: i-Pad, i-Pod, i-Phone, i-mac...I'm sure there is more. Did you know a MacBook Light weighs just over 2#? Amazing. It's fun to go to stores like that when there is absolutely no chance of having to make some agonizing decision.
So we did some more window shopping. As we passed Abercrombie & Fitch I did a double take. Their website advertises "sexy, casual clothing" but this was too much. There was a big poster of two guys standing as though facing each other, with their jeans zippers partially open. The caption read "are you in?" How do they get AWAY with this?
After some more walking and a little snack, we sat for a few minutes on a bench while I took a cell phone call. In front of a store and directly in our line of vision was a nice looking young female employee who was changing out a sign stand. She repeatedly had to squat to do what she was doing and each time we saw far more of her backside than anyone would have desired to. I told hubby I wanted to walk over to her and say "excuse me, do you realize that every time you squat down like that your crack shows?" Now I have to wonder, is she totally aware or unaware of this?
We finally left the mall and got home. I feel like one of Beatrice Potter's bunnies returning to my safe little rabbit hole. Sometimes it really does feel like it's too big and too bad a world out there.
