Maybe it’s a suburban thang, but the mall wasn’t the cluster fudge that I anticipated. In fact, it wasn’t so bad. After lunch, the boy and I hit the LEGO store, which was kinda sort of a cluster fudge, then we had a quik-e stroll around the mall to see if there was anything to see. Protip: there ain’t nothin’ to see at the mall.
Actually, as we were aimlessly wandering around the not-so-crowded mall, the boy ran smack dab into Santa Claus, who was also trolling the mall. I think Santa was trying to stay incognito and stuff, but his big red suit and jingle bells kinda sorta blew his cover. Santa gave the boy a wave, and the boy stood awestruck with his jaw on the floor.
As soon as Santa passed, the boy asked me, “Do you think that was the real Santa Claus?” And I said, I dunno, what do you think? And the boy said, “I’m sure he was the real Santa Claus. We’re lucky that we were at the mall when Santa happened to be here because he probably has a lot of malls to visit right before Christmas!”
Later, while gawking at the Christmas tree in the middle of the mall, the boy asked me, “Do you think that’s a real tree?” And I said, Nah, it’s probably fake. And the boy said, “Sheesh, the mall owners should get a real tree. If they can get a real Santa, why can’t they get a real tree?” And I said, I dunno.
