A Fate Worse Than Death…Part 2

As much as I would love to travel the countryside to view the shopping mall shrines dedicated to my memory…I guess I should just end the cliff hanger.   I didn’t mean to drop off like that…we just had a busy weekend.

Anyway…I almost hate to say this, but the mall really wasn’t that bad.  (Gasp!)  We arrived there and had a quick little chat to set up our rendezvous time and spot in a couple hours.  The gaggle of girls went one way, KT and her friend went the other.  The birthday girl’s mother, A and I were left to stare at each other in the sudden quiet.  

With a burst of inspiration, A suggested we head over to the nearby Starbucks and grab ourselves some coffee.  Armed with my soy latte (you’re right Stephanie…Heaven!) we settled down on a fountain bench and got to know each other.  Once we got chatting, it seemed as if we had known each other for years. 

We had to pause briefly to go meet up with the girls and see the movie.  Naturally, we sat as far from the girls as we possibly could.  (Even then I think we still managed to embarrass them with our giggling over the movie!) Afterwards we settled ourselves in front of the huge fireplace (Yes, inside the mall!)  and chatted some more. 

We didn’t pay any attention to the fact that we were surrounded by shops galore and people wandering by.  The mall was redone a year or so ago and it really is nice.  It seems very well laid out, spacious and even…sunny. (On our grey, grey days!)  There are tons of places to just sit and relax with a feeling of privacy.  The girls felt very independent and had loads of fun, and so did the grown ups.

All in all…it was a good day.  (Sorry for all of those out there hoping for a horror story….)

    Glad that you have made a new friend. Gee and you didn’t get mugged or turned into a frog from your mall trip. Sounds like you had a very good outing!

    Wow! An enjoyable trip to the mall? That is almost like winning the lotto, I think! =-) I’m glad you had a good time and made a new friend…oh and had the opportunity to embarrass teens from across the theater! Right on!

    I guess I will have to save the candles, poster and cross, then! I’m sure that even though your story was positive, at some point, som friend will be sucked in by the mall and lost forever. Now I’ll be prepared for their shrine, though!

    Take care and have a good week! =-)

    What movie did you go see? My favorite part of going to the mall is grabbing a coffee and people watching… or dipping into the nearest book store if there is one. I’m not big in to shoes, or clothes, or overpriced dishes.

  5. Yes…you’ve been pulled to the dark side….Mwahahahahahahahha!!! And yes….who knew soy lattes could be so divine?? How are the veggies tasting?Awesome I’m sure. FUnny how that works huh? I’m tellin’ ya though…..I’ll teach you to knit. You’ll never be upset about going to the mall again. You can settle down with your latte or tea and knit knit knit!!! That would *really* embarrass the teens!!

    That sounds like a mall even I would like. I’m always having to wait on my friends, who are power-shoppers, and have to sit on those hard benches. I would love a comfortable place to sit – in front of a fireplace, no less!

  7. Barb says:

    Sounds like you had a wonderful time! Glad it went well.

  8. Jay says:

    Well I have to admit that was hopiing for a bit of a horror story. But, oh well. Maybe next time.

    Malls can be a great place to hang out. I’ve done the same thing with my daughter and her friends and been pleasantly surprised

    Yay for happy endings! I love the mall, its the people I can’t stand! I am thrilled for your sake that it was fairly empty so you could find a nice cozy place to sit and chat. 🙂
