I got lost at the mall

Want to know something weird about me? I can remember phone numbers. I can remember the names of my 1st grade classmates and some of their phone numbers. I can remember 10,000 details about New Testament history so I can spew them off to an unsuspecting conversant. I can remember a few hundred YMX screen names, where they live, and their real first name.

But I can’t remember where I have parked, ever.

I got turned around tonight at Lakeside Mall I was even careful to note where I had parked, what store I was in front of and once I got in that store which direction I needed to head to find my car. It turns out none of that helps. I walked out the door, headed towards where I parked the car. And it wasn’t there. And since no one is out looking to steal a 1998 Camry… I knew it wasn’t stolen. I walked around. Looked around. Walked down more aisles.

It turns out that Lakeside Mall has two Macy’s. Who has ever heard of a mall with two Macy’s? [Shout out to AB! I pulled an Autumn.]

The good news was that I got what I needed from Steve and Barry’s. Fortunately for me, it was my first trip to the mall since Christmas 2006.

  1. LOL, I worked at the mall several times so Todd always asks me to “lead the way” when it comes to finding a store there. I have to admit that the double Macys is really annoying though.
