I don’t like the mall or the mall area.  I know that lots of people enjoy going to the mall and the mall area to shop and love going to the restaurants that ring (literally) the mall, but I don’t.  For me, it all lacks individuality.  I could be anywhere in America.  I think that’s what some people like.  The predictable.  You go to a mall,  and you have a really good idea of what you’re going to get.  I’m not a big fan of the predictable.  I want something locally-owned, something I won’t find the exactly the same of somewhere else.  Something that reflects the tastes of where it is located.  I don’t like cookie cutter.  Not in foods or stores or friends.  Give me something or someone unique, something or someone odd, something or someone that makes me take notice, that says, “I’m one of a kind.  This is it.  And I’m sharing it with you.”

  1. Well put!! I am tempted to post something snarky about the inherent evil of malls and to what abhorrible extent they taint America’s youth…. but I digress.
