So last night i went to the mall with my brother and another one of my friends. Fortunately, my friend and i have the same philosophy about shopping. Enter the store, ignoring anything without a red sticker, immediately go to the back of the store where the clearance racks are, and search for anything that costs less than five dollars. I have perfected this technique over the years, but unfortunately, last night, there was just nothing to be found. I am going to be going back to the mall soon, so hopefully i'll find something good (and the next time i'll have more money.)
So we decided to stop by McDonald's to grab a bite to eat. Of course, as always, the ice cream machine was broken. It always seems like anytime Charles wants to get a sundae, McDonald's is out of ice cream. Poor guy, but i guess he'll live. We wandered around the mall a little more, bought some pretzels, and just had fun talking and laughing. Nine o'clock came way too soon. Why is it that malls close at 9? Do they think we all have a bedtime to be met? It never really bothered me too much at school, but at home i don't have a 10:30 curfew. Seriously, what person in their right mind wants to go home at 9? Anyway, we headed off to Borders to roam around and look at magazines. We thought about getting coffee, but we were full of Auntie Anne's pretzels and McDonald's fries. Not exactly the most healthy combination. So, we just sat and looked at magazines while Charles tried to find a movie that he has wanted to watch for a while. My friend got out the bridal magazines, not my first choice as absolutely everyone at school is crazy over them. (Not to mention, i don't plan on needing them any time soon.) Needless to say i had a GREAT time...which is nice since it is one of the few times i have actually gotten to go out.
