Is my perpetual state of awe becoming boring? Everytime I take my scooter to the nearby mall, I come home in a state of shock. There are things available to buy that I never even knew had been invented yet.
Case in point: For less than $15 I bought a memory card for my digital camera. When I inserted it in my wonderous new digital camera, it tells me I can take and store-- get this -- 595 pictures. My gosh I will never have to download them to the computer. I can carry a life time of pictures in the camera.
Then in the mall were parked CARS FOR SALE. Right in front of Pennys was the most beautiful car I have ever seen: a bright red Mitsubishi. Price tag right on it. $28,000. I wonder what you could negotiate? I had my credit card with me, but do not need a new car, unfortunately.
Back in 1946, Marshall Fields sold airplanes in the department store. I wonder if that is a trend that is coming back.
I bought wine, candy, and soda crackers in the drug store. Passed on beer.
At Radio Shack I saw a two foot remote controlled robot walking in the aisle, and glowing like a green nightmare. That would have scared the bejesus out of my kids when they were little. Still might now: it wobbles so menacingly.
On my way home I noted signs that told me that Hometown Buffet is selling steaks for supper. Does Sizzler know about this?
Another sign of the times: one entire drawer in my house exclusively for batteries...AA, AAA, D, C, 9 v., hearing aid, and testers.
