Sanity and the Mall
Thinking back, Garth Brooks had this song that I used to jam to back in high school, thats right you can jam to country, anyway it was titled, Unanswered Prayers - to which the jist of the song essentially deals with a couple of circumstances where Garth, formally known as Chris Gaines, then returning to Garth Brooks prays that God would give him the current desires of his heart - the girl, the future, etc. - but those prayers go unanswered and the song is Garth Gaines' looking back thankful that these prayers go unanswered due the beauty that is his life now, beyond even the expectations and fantasies of that girl, future, and john deer green tractor maybe?
This was not one of those situations.... even in spite of the awesomeness that is below.....this ride was long, this ride was stressful, and this ride was primarily awake....
Half way through our ride, we are hungry, and by we I mean we. And B is tired of riding and by tired I mean screaming. So we stop in Columbia at Columbiana Place in search of the food court. We are thinking it will probably be good to let B run around a bit, work those restless legs - he wouldn't be able to do that in a fast food joint, would he? thus the mall call..... And as soon as we walk in our sanity arrives and so does the following madness. Enjoy.
