Teddy made her daily walk down to the Wal-Mart plaza and back today, a distance of about 6 miles round trip. She isn't much into shopping but always comes back with a few small incidentals. Today, though when she came back she asked me what I had been doing and I said that I had been shopping.
She said, "Where?".
Me, "Maine".
She, "Maine?".
Me, "Yup, L.L.Bean."
Gawd, I love shopping on the internet. I was able to buy a couple of polo shirts and never leave my chair. And they'll be delivered right to my door. In the past three months I've bought a TV mounting arm, shoes for Teddy (twice), a camera, computer software, some books and a mattress. All over the internet. Welcome to the 21st century, folks.
And yet...I feel that I was born a generation too soon...what wonders will my son, Mike see in his lifetime?
