One of our major malls puts on a free lunch for seniors each year. Now this is one of the Micro Manager favorite events. Not so much for me.
The micro manager likes to get to the mall shortly after 9:30 AM for lunch! Why? At that time the Micro Manager can line up for a free bag full of trash. (I'm not very nice am I?) The gift bag for the Micro manager is a big deal. You get the bag and lots of stuff inside. Well, let see. There's a coupon to get your picture taken with Santa. She can't wait to run over and get the picture taken. What else afghan, calendar, box of Kleenex, some other coupons and candy and chocolates.
Then there's the lunch. You line up with 300 seniors and slowly move through the line to get your soup, sandwiches, juice, coffee and cookies. The lunch is a good deal. To be honest, I didn't line up. The Micro Manager went through with two plates. I held the table down as I had to make sure somebody didn't take off with the goody bag.
What did I do when the Micro manager was having so much fun? I read the paper, did the puzzles and played games on the ipad!
I don't like malls much. Or crowds much when I don't know anybody. I like crowds if I know the people.
Oh yes, the Micro manager had a little shopping to do.
So this was my stressful day.
I know I'll get a lot of sympathy for this whine!
