Mr. EOS got his iPhone 8Plus at the Stamford Town Center this morning. We got to the mall at 9:50 and there was already a long line at The Apple Store. We were the only people in line not Asian not Indian not Pakistani. We were also the only ones without a reservation to buy the iPhone X.
So we got to cut to the head of the line, the loser line apparently, as we could sense the non-English tittering as we said iPhone 8 Plus. Our Apple salesman was pleasant but he was a low talking mumbler. We must have said “what” five times and I have bat hearing. No need to change the SIM card there so we were out of Apple by 10:20. Paid.
From there a quick pit stop at Godiva to buy a few of their beautiful (and delicious) chocolate filled Advent Calendars. I sure didn’t grow up with chocolate filled Advent calendars – I remember having things like a penny in each tab. Or nothing but except a pretty scene we ooohed and aaahed about. Am I remembering wrong?
Then another zip up I-95 to Norwalk, Stu Leonard’s.
It stopped raining by the time we got to Stu’s, the parking lot not mobbed, nor was the store, but we got hung up in a few aisles by oblivious shoppers who leave carts in the middle of an aisle or, in one instance, an older man who looked a bit down on his luck, eating the free samples. We cut him some slack.
Got 99% of my Thanksgiving shopping done now. I go down to Delaware on Monday to get my mother and she’ll be here all week.
Tuesday next week I’ll just have to get a few bakery items, like dinner rolls etc. and I expect to cook any make ahead things this weekend.
Just call me Barbara Mason…..
