I went for a little run this morning and noticed a bit more company than usual. Are the resolution runners already afoot? Pun intended? Actually, I think it might be because I've been sleeping in - just a bit - so was out when more of the general population wasn't asleep. Still, I know the resolutionists are about to arrive.
It's been a nice break so far. Since everyone survived Christmas Camp, the gifts were dished out. And on time too as we weren't part of the great UPS / FedEx missed shipments of 2013.
On Boxing Day Thursday, we joined the hoards and went to Best Buy and the mall - just to be a part of the chaos. Chaco was getting some needed jeans at the mall and the hip, trendy store we were in had quite a queue to the fitting rooms. I told him, "Let's just get them and you can try them on at home, just don't remove the tags". After all, men's jeans are so much easier to buy than women's!
As we left the store with the untried-on jeans in a bag, however, Chaco began plotting. He could go to non-hip, non-trendy Sears and use their fitting room to try on his non-Sears jeans.
"You can't do that!", I interjected, "That'd be like bringing a sack lunch to McDonalds!"
"I'd do that too!", he confessed.
In the meantime I got some basketball shoes with Meego for the upcoming season. Later we met up with Magnum, Wolfgang, and Chaco at the snowboard/skateboard store where Chaco reported that his jeans fit just fine.
"How do you know?", I cautiously asked.
"I went to the Sears fitting room!"
Would you? Have you?
