On the way to Younger Daughter's fiddle recital in the city last Friday evening, we found ourselves with a little time to kill. So... we went to a mall.
Malls are rare excursions for us, largely because (a) they're so far away, and (b) they're so useless. What on earth is there to buy in a mall except clothes? And since all our clothes come from thrift shops, we never venture elsewhere.
Anyway, it was all dolled up for Christmas, of course.
Younger Daughter was particularly taken with the idea of palm trees - in north Idaho! (Well, northeast Washington - we were in Spokane.)
Want proof that the Lewis family is nothing but a bunch of country bumpkins? Older Daughter took one look at this store sign and misread it as "Manure." True story.
But you know the biggest reason we get turned off by malls? The rampant consumerism. Oh sure, I realize that's the whole purpose of a mall - to offer places to shop - but when we saw this on a store window, we knew we were in the wrong place. (It's a bit dark, so click to enlarge.)
"Season's Greedy?" Now tell me something... Someone had to think of this little slogan. And someone had to believe this slogan would be attractive enough to draw people into their store. And their logic is......??
