Interesting Coralee, I had some similar thoughts myself. My husband and I went out for a nice dinner at a nice restaurant after some Christmas shopping. It just so happened that the man at the table next to us is a) a real loud jerk or b) had too much to drink which made him a real loud jerk. Needless to say, I was ready to get out of there as soon as the eating was done. So then we go to do more shopping and encountered a child in need of a little disciplining. When we walked out of that store I said to my husband, "I am getting old. If it's not a drunk adult, it's a screaming kid...I can't take this anymore." :) As for Walmart and 1am, that was my salvation in the early years of child rearing with a self employed husband. Once he was home and the kids were tucked in I would head out to Walmart. That is how I know that the cash registers at Walmart automatically log the cashier off at midnight and they have to move to a different register to log back in...just so happens once that I had just unloaded my buggy onto the belt and the cashier said "I'm sorry. We have to move to a different register." She was very apologetic but it don't bother me none, I was in no hurry and had all the time in the world.

  1. I love middle-of-the -night shopping! It is pure magic. In Brooklyn I'll go out at 9 after Alex gets home and even that feels like an adventure. But when we've lived places you can drive to a big market it's even more fun. I don't really have big holiday shopping, as Hanukkah is over and wasn't such a big deal anyway!


How nice of you to leave a comment :)
