Trip to the city (part one)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on any site, but i decided I wanted to tell you all about the last time I went shopping with my wife. She hadn’t been into the city for at least six months, so was really keen to hit all the big department stores before lunch and then the plan was to go to some of the outer suburb shops on the way home.  As usual she got me up early to beat the rush hour traffic because she wanted to get to her favourite shop in the city mall before it opebed. Her logic is that all the good bargains are replenished over night by the night staff so going early givr her the best chance to grab a bargain.  I usually just drop her off and then go and find a nice coffee shop to settle into while she goes about her business. This time however she wanted me along to help carry her purchases because she planned on buying all her yearly birthday presents on one day and get them all over and done with before Febuary.  I know she particularly wanted to buy some slippers for her sister and a new set of rosary beads for her mother in the nursing home. I thought this was a rather good idea if unrealistic because I knew that even if she did get everything the lure of the shops would be too great for her to resist after about May, but still I agreed to her plan.  So here I was sitting on the bus stop outside Myers in the Mall waiting for it to open watching all the staff arrive, many obviously late looking worried an harried.  My wife smiled at them all obviously hoping her goodwill would translate into some discount on her goods if by chance one of these late souls would be behind the checkout when it came time to tally up the goods……
