Would you believe I was in the mall the other day and I DIDN’T go to Athleta? It’s true. Would you believe I have lived in Providence for two and a half months now, within easy reach of Athleta after a year and a half of being two hours from the nearest one, and I haven’t been even once? Also true. I must be ill. Would you believe I went into a bookstore yesterday and didn’t buy a single book? You would? You’re gullible.
We were at the mall over the weekend to see the third Thor movie, which is BY FAR the best of the Thor movies. Those first two were pretty bad. The second one is easily the worst of the Marvel movies. This one was more like Guardians of the Galaxy – funny, fast-paced, and fun.
The mall was all decked out for Christmas, and we had to go through the entire thing, from the basement level to the top floor, and from one end to the other, to get from the car to the movie theater. We didn’t do any shopping – I’m afraid that once we go back so we can buy stuff, we’ll be holiday’d out faster than usual. Would you believe it? Somehow we’ll live.
