Shopping Mall Randomness

- Please don’t tell me plaid pants are popular again. Plaid shirts too. I hate plaid on me. I have acquired and discarded plaid at least twice in my life and I didn’t like it then either. But plaid dominated the young men’s section of Macy’s and Penney’s during my shopping trip yesterday.

- Please don’t tell me pastel green and pastel orange are popular again. Repeat the above paragraph but substitute the word pastel for the word plaid.

- If I had kids, they would NOT be running up and down the aisles of mall stores screaming.

- There seem to be as many kiosks in the mall open space as there are stores with doors. I could buy watches, cards, cell phones, jewelry, pretzels and a condo without ever setting foot in a store.

- I’m certain that Stevie Wonder and Ronnie Milsap designed the parking lot at my local mall.

- I’m trying to expand my wardrobe in a bit bolder direction, but I keep buying Eddie Bauer. Got some more at the outlet mall today. EB is not especially stylish but it isn’t out of style either.

- I’ve lost ten pounds since December but I still don’t quite qualify for ’slim fit.’

- Some items at the outlet mall cost more than similar items at traditional malls.

- I’m no fashion expert but I do know that it’s time to donate my Hawaiian shirts to Goodwill. All ten of them.

Your toes look good painted. I'd have to lose a bet to paint mine! hahaha I do like my Hawaiin shirts - maybe I'll keep them for the next time they're popular again.
