Science Experiment/Trip to the Mall
Observations- There was an overweight man with a mustache, no beard- just the stache, wearing a Patriots tee shirt- from 2004- leaning against the railing. What are you waiting for, kind sir? I did not ask. Otherwise, I saw a few Moms looking ragged with tiny people around them holding their hands, casually relaxing in strollers, screaming. Then there were college girls giggling and shopping between classes, or maybe even skipping a class because who cares? They do not have a care in the world.
I momentarily found myself envying the employed girl taking my money at my favorite store. As she stepped away from the counter and I realized just how pregnant this 17 year old girl was, I decided to snap out of it. I tried retail once anyway, and if anyone else reading this has ever dressed a mannequin, then you know why I occasionally still have day-mares from my short stint at Macys.
Conclusion- Malls are kind of sad no matter when you go.
