I am sitting on the second floor of the mall between HMV and Build a Bear.
  1. As far as the teenagers are concerned I am invisible.
    Static
    It is around 4:30 pm. They probably just got out of school.
  2. The teenagers swear every sentence.
    Static
    It is annoying and distracting. I find it hard to concentrate on my book.
  3. One of the girls wants to be a waitress or own a strip club!
    Static
    Such lofty career goals. Okay I'm being snarky but only in my head.
  4. There is no where comfortable to sit.
    The mall benches are hard and uncomfortable.
  5. I don't want to buy anything.
    Not even chocolate. Not even books.
  6. Okay maybe all the books.
    Nope. Don't want any of the books. Not even Stephen King's new one or his son Joe's book.
  7. I am killing time before my out of town bus leaves for home.
    I didn't drive into the city because I didn't feel like dealing with parking in the city. 🚗🚚🚛🚑🚍🚕🚓🚲🏍🚜
  8. I am tired and sun-burnt and just want to be home with a tall glass of ice water. 💦Why is there no water glass emoji?
  9. I wonder what my cat, Lulu is doing right now.
    Probably sleeping. I need a nap.
  10. It is a Wednesday afternoon. There are not a lot of people at the mall.
    Static
  11. The teenagers have left. I can go back to reading my book in peace and quiet.
  12. Nope. Time to explore Build A Bear.
    Static
    It is quiet and not full of excited little children.
  13. Okay. Maybe I would buy a bear or two.
    Static
    I won't even though I have "spare" money today.
  14. There are cute costumes.
    Static
    Like Wonder Woman and Super Girl.
  15. I almost bought this Canada Day outfit for my bear Zuzu.
    Static
    She is named after the little girl in It's A Wonderful Life.
  16. But I didn't buy anything today except food. My "spare" money is safe and sound in my wallet.
  17. Now I am on the bus heading home. Good-bye and good night all.
