A Fate Worse Than Death…

I don’t have a lot of time to write this morning.  I am slated to go on an adventure that I consider worse than death.  Somehow, I  was cooerced suckered asked to drive a gaggle of giggling girls… to the mall. 

Now most women I know get breathless at the thought of stepping in to a shopping mall.  They flush with excitment and are ready to go.  Not me.  I can’t stand shopping.  The mere thought of spending even an hour trapped in a brightly lit, money sucking emporium makes me break out into a cold sweat.  I have no idea what five or six hours will do to me. 

Yet somehow, I’m going.  There is no school today, it is one of those teacher’s day that come up.  So one of Mimi’s friends is taking advantage of it to celebrate her birthday.  I’m not sure why I was asked to help with the driving, but apparently, one of my endearing traits it that I have a hard time saying “no”.  Either that,  my children know exactly when to catch me at my weak moments!

If I survive, I’ll be sure to let you know all the details.  If you never hear from me again, well…just think of me each time you pass a mall…

    Oh, boy. Just reading about going to a mall gives me an anxiety attack. I hate going shopping, too. That’s why we have the internet, isn’t it?

    Well, of course you have an anxiety attack when the word “Mall” is mentioned. That’s because I spent more then one billion dollars having you brain washed when you were three so that the mear mention of the word throws you into a panic. No mall shopping for me, so no mall shopping for you! Love ya mom

  3. Ahh….this is why you need to learn to knit. You would happily take the kids to the mall so you could sit hot tea and knit uninterrupted for 4-5 hours. That would be pure bliss for me!!! When you are ready to lean…give me a holler!

    UH er, I guess Im the odd one out. I love the mall! I love the smell of it. I love the bustle of it. I feel empowered in a mall. okay I better stop now! LOL

    I am with you about the mall…When my stepdaughter, was younger and wanted to go to the mall, I would tell her and her friends they were free to meander around, and I would step into the book store for some respite. ( the girls had to check in with me at set times.)

  6. Jay says:

    Oh how sad. The mall is just brutal. I can tolerate open air malls, but the big, stuffy and crowded cave-like malls suck the life right out of me.

  7. Jocelyn says:

    If there’s one reason I read blogs, it’s for the reporting of mall adventures. No, seriously. There’s a particular kind of mall-aise that fascinates me. Do report!

    okay, i am a shopping-loving-girl at heart, But if I knew I had to keep up with a gaggle of girls, I might rethink that….

    my mall shopping experience would include lunch at Nordstrom’s and a mani/pedi at some foo foo salon that offered wine and cheese at noon! I don’t think this little fantasy jives with that of a pre-teen/teenager!!

    Ok, am I the only one getting a little nervous? It is now Monday, and we haven’t heard anything since Friday? Did the mall get you? Oh NO!!! Maybe you are in an anxiety induced coma from too much mall exposure! I hope to hear from you soon, and rest assured that if the mall did get you, I will be sure to set up a shrine in front of my local mall to pay homage to my fallen fellow blogger so others will know the dangers which can lie behind the entry doors, and perhaps I can save even one soul from a tragedy such as yours!

    Ok if you don’t make it I guess i get the house and the RV. LOL

  11. Kati says:

    Hi Susan!!!! Thanks for coming to take a peek at my place! I can understand your anxiety about this. I only go to malls rarely, and then only if I have something I know I need from a store in the mall. LOL And thankfully we don’t have any big malls in my town (tiny almost strip-malls, rather quiet most of the time).

    Hope you survive the um….. adventure? 😉

    I don’t like shopping either unless I have alot of money to spend which is never so I guess I hate shopping. I hate trying clothes on……it’s usually very disappointing because it never looks as good on me as it did on the model. I hate the long lines that some stores ALWAYS have, such as Ross, TJ Maxx, JC Penney, etc…get my drift??? Ya, it’s giving me a headache just thinking about it. Of course, when I go, I’m alone and not with a bunch of giggling teens so I guess shopping isn’t that bad when I think about it now! 🙂

  13. Arlene says:

    I sincerely hope the mall didn’t suck you up!
    I don’t like shopping much, unless I’m without kiddies and hunny, and even then I only like to get what I’m getting and get out!

  14. Ellie says:

    WOW! You are very brave woman!

    I, too, have SUCKER written on my forhead. In addition, shopping is not my forte. My thoughts are with you. Since we have not heard from you since Friday, I pray that all is well!
