Well, its official...I don't know how it happened...I am not a mall person anymore. When my boys were little, we like to go to the mall and just walk around. Maybe buy a coke or a cookie, but just get out of the house and hang out. I could spend hours there but not anymore. I've become my Dad, walk in, get what you came for and walk out. Its scary.
Maybe its the crowds: I hate them (however, I will put up with them at Disney!) . Maybe its the people: I don't care about your phone conversations, or care to smell your stinky perfume, or want to see your body that your Mom didn't tell you to cover up, or see your multiple body piercings, or hear your bad, nasty language. Maybe its the stores: the window displays are too suggestive and the sales people are pushy. Maybe its the kiosks: I don't want a massage, I don't want to tell you who my cell phone company is, I don't want to tell you what I use to style my hair, etc.
There are only 2 advantages I saw today to going to a mall....1. it was air conditioned 2. it had a Chick Fil A. Thats it, the only 2 reasons we even stayed an hour. Thank you Lord for Chick Fil A's sweet tea...it was welcomed and yummy!
OR just maybe its because I like living in the country (Miss.), maybe I like to hang onto my money, maybe I've got better things to do with my time, maybe I'm becoming a home body, or maybe its all of the above.
Yes, I will still go to Mall of GA when we are in Atlanta...Amy loves it. But we can go into some fun stores there like Disney, Build a Bear, & Hallmark.
