Couldn't find my way out of paper bag if I tried, and I tried
Today I went to take a friend to the airport, I had to get up at 7:30am. I am so not a morning person. I figured that while I was close to a great mall, I would go and check out the after Halloween sales. We have no decorations for Halloween. Plus I get most of my exercise by wandering malls in a contolled climate, I don't take the heat or the cold very well, and I'm not an impulse shopper so it works for me. I have been to this mall a gazillion times, but today I swear I couldn't find it, I was going in circles, overshooting it, making my circle smaller, mising it. Crossing the same intersections over and over from each direction each time. It was rainy, I was cold, and frustrated. The other shopping Mecca's are outdoor air ones, so the weather sucked for that. I finally gave up and decided to just come home, I missed my exit..GAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
By the time I finally got going home in the only way there is I decided that I was on an ellipitical planetary path, that was never destined to collide with the intended mall. The cause: the rain, the waking up at a horrid time of day, daylight savings time (which I swore at one point that today must really be Halloween not yesterday).
Oh well, I really do go to Orlando enough for Dr's that I can just hit the mall after my appt Tuesday. Then Halloween stuff will probably be 75% off not 50% off.
Why can't we have real shopping on the beach end? Do they think we wear nothing but swimsuits, sandals and shorts all day all the time. Wait, I do.
