Shopping

"Think we should stop in at Linens & Things sometime before it closes?" Lut asks me, as we're eating dinner on the outside patio of Buffalo Wild Wings.

I glance over my shoulder at the strip mall behind us to see the big "STORE CLOSING" sign under the name. "Sure. We could use some more sheets and maybe some ... things. I don't know what else they have."

We step inside the store. "Wow. They've got a lot of other stuff." I say, meandering into the kitchenware section, as Lut trails behind and watches me shop. "We could use some new measuring cups ... "

Three hundred and seventy dollars later:

"What the hell was I thinking?" Lut asks me.

"I have no idea."
