On a business trip. No, he didn't have to specifically go to the Mall of America-it just happens to be close by to the event he has to attend. If he did have to come here for his job-he would have had to bring me-his GORGEOUS, SHOPAHOLIC Wife with him. If airfare wouldn't have been $700 bucks a ticket-I would be with him.
The reason why I am even talking about this is because he just called. This is what he said,
"WHAT! how in the heck can you bored at the Mall of America?"
"There is nothing for me to do."
"Are you kidding me?"
There is nothing that I really want to buy-or look at."
"Really-your wife is home-alone with 3 kids who all think that they need to be entertained every minute, not to mention eat all time, and you don't have anything to buy?"
I then proceeded to tell him all the things that he could legitimately buy without my help and then that he couldn't screw up on. Silver earrings, pj bottoms(i love these) cute shoes(yes, he does do a great job at this) a clock (always a safe bet with me-i collect.. Not that they help with the whole on time thing). So, I basically gave many ideas for him. After all, i was only thinking of him, he was bored. I felt it was my duty as a wife to provide him with some entertainment while he was away. Yes, I am that nice!
"OK-i guess I can look"
"good answer-i would hate for you to have to sleep on the couch when you get home."
