Mall of America!
My husband just returned from a business trip to Minneapolis. He was there for a few days and had some time to kill. Great! He was going to be able to take pictures of the Mall of America, one of the biggest malls in the world. He could show all of the excess and marketing and ways to show all of us how meaningless and awful our lives are unless we buy the things the stores are selling.
He could have done all of this except I didn't put the newly charged battery in the camera that he carefully packed.
That, and he never left the hotel to go across the street to check it out. He couldn't bring himself to do it.
That's OK husband. We'll all just try and picture store after store of shiny new beautifully, excessively packaged stuff that we don't need.
Thanks though. Welcome home!
