Shopping Gene

This is not true of every man, but I think most men do not enjoy shopping...excluding shopping for drills and those "man" kind of things. Greg, however, enjoys most shopping. Even grocery shopping! He likes going to the book store, Old Navy, browsing in Marshall's, shoe shopping at DSW, traipsing around the mall, Pottery Barn, electronics stores, Target.....I can even get him to go to my craft stores. In fact, sometimes *he* suggests taking me to the craft stores. Plus, he is a buyer. I don't think he has ever come out of Old Navy empty handed. He's a shoppin' thing.

So, his parents are coming out in a few weeks from Indiana and they have been here 3 or 4 times now so they have done all the tourist things - I promise this ties into what I just wrote about. I was trying to think of something interesting to do while they are here and I thought of a tour of Hollywood since I know they have never been there and it's not too far to go....it could be a day trip. We look into it and Greg finds this tour that takes you all over and you pretty much see everything.....so he tells his folks. We figure this will be a sure thing. Well, turns out it's not. They seem a little less than interested. And when I say "they", I mean his Dad. I was surprised. I thought for sure his Dad would love to see all the stars hand/shoe prints and the walk of fame and all that stuff. But seems not. Instead, he told Greg he wants to make sure we get to the outlet mall they went to the last time they were out here.

The outlet mall? He wants to go to a shopping mall over seeing Hollywood?

*is confused*

Ok, whatever....not going to Hollywood will save us a lot of gas and we won't have to get up early....so that's fine. We'll just go the mall. So father and son can shop.

I can window shop the hell
out of a mall. It's rare that I buy myself something though.
