Ben had a conference in Chicago this past weekend. The conference ran both days, so we all drove down with him on Sunday so that the girls and I could spend the day shopping [and going to the public restroom every half-hour]. Whereas Ben spent the day sitting in a lecture hall taking notes on building Drupal modules for six hours. Sounds sexy doesn’t it?
On our list of ‘Places to Fritter Away Our Money’ was the American Girl Place store. We’d visited this doll store a few times when Lexi was younger and from what I can remember the store’s greeter grabs unsuspecting parents by the ankles, holds them upside down, and shakes them violently until all the money falls out of their pockets. But like I said, I’ve been to the store before so I knew to wear a floor length skirt and avoid eye contact.
Never again Store Greeter, never again!
