Say It Ain't So

Its sad, really. They were selling everything - all the furniture, display stands, even the seven foot tall talking tree. I was tempted to ask if the escallators were for sale. I could really use one of those and I figured that this was as good a deal as I was going to get. Then my wife reminded me we'd have to get it home somehow so I dropped the idea. Maybe next year.

That really is sad. I hate seeing shops close down. Especially when they're such popular, big, corporations. It makes me want to cry. :(

escalator home...

Escalators are cool...except not very attractive in the home.
