Shopping is a hit or miss thing for us, and usually it is a miss. So, when we have a good shopping trip, we feel really good about ourselves. Yesterday, Monica had the afternoon off and we went to see the movie 21. After the movie we went to Wolfchase to get me some glasses from Lenscrafters. We got there at 4:30 and it turns out I needed a new prescription, so I saw one of their eye docs. After I ordered my glasses and sunglasses, we had to kill 1 1/2 hours until they were ready. That was when we started our suicide mission to find a dress for Monica to wear to two weddings this spring.
Fortunately, we were looking for a chocolate brown dress. I think most people know that if you can know the color of the dress, you can scan through racks pretty quickly, and it can save days of dress-looking time. We pride ourselves in being quick scanners at stores. After trying several stores in the mall, Monica said the dreaded phrase, “It looks like we’ll have to go to a department store.” Fear entered my heart, but I had to be strong for her, and we went to Macy’s. This is the amazing part--we were there less than 20 minutes and walked out with the perfect dress! We gave each other several high fives and then proceeded to go to Brookstone to sit in massage chairs and lie on their Tempur-Pedic mattresses. After picking up my glasses, we left the mall at 8, without fighting. Three and a half hours of shopping and we were still friends!
