It's 96 degrees today, and, since I stayed inside all day yesterday for the fast, I decided to go by myself to the mall. It's one of those nice ones with 4 departments stores on 2 floors and about 180 others stores also. I am tired today; fasting makes me sluggish for a couple of days afterwards. But I shlepped myself through the mall anyway.

In every store in which I ventured, there was at least one sales-girl or -boy greeting me with a perky, "Hi! How are you today?" The first time this happened, I was a little startled by the enthusiasm of the "Hello." But I managed a "Hi, I'm well. How are you?" anyway. By the time I entered my tenth store, all I could muster was a nod and a smile. I wondered if they thought I was being rude?

Here's my question: Do you have to be chatty, friendly, happy, awake to shop?

I think all those crazy salespeople were either on uppers or on commission, I don't know which.

I think I ended up doing that at the end, but's not really my nature to ignore people (except the kids).
