crowded mall – a mindset

This is really more of an oscillate entry, but for various reasons it’s been a while since i’ve posted on here and my thoughts about this bleed into resonate territory, so i thought i’d cross over. Not with John Edward. ahem.

I’ve been sick for a good four or so days now with some sort of cold/flu/feverish thing that’s been passed around. I”m not 100% back to full health, but i was feeling alert enough earlier to get some work done and then decided that i wanted to venture over to the mall even though i knew it was probably going to be a madhouse.

And it was what i expected it to be: traffic was fussy both in and out, parking took an extra twenty minutes, lines were long because there were so many people there even for crappy mall food and there wasn’t really anywhere to sit to eat. On top of that, I didn’t accomplish what i set out to accomplish, which was to buy something for the white elephant christmas tradition for my trip back to PA, mainly because i was being too picky about it. Two hours or so later i was sporting a bad headache and a feverish sort of feeling because i had run out of flu medicine and didn’t buy any more earlier because i thought i had kicked it.

In general it should have been a pretty miserable experience. And i absolutely loved it.
