For as long as I can remember, I have loved to shop. The problem with that when you are younger, however, is you are not legally allowed to drive to stores by yourself. Also, most young people do not have a big fortune to spend. As a kid, a wish would be to have a parent who is willing to drive you to several stores and buy everything you like. That’s one of the reasons I always looked forward to back to school shopping. My mom would load us all into the car and drive to the neighborhood mall. Once we were there, she would buy us all new clothes and supplies for the upcoming school year. I look back on those times fondly and so many of them are great memories for me. While I still love shopping to this very day, I recently had a horrible experience at the mall. As luck would have it, the cooling equipment in the mall that day was not working. As luck would have it, it was the same exact day I wanted to go on a shopping spree. I had all this money just burning a hole in my pocket. I could not wait to spend it all and get myself some cool new stuff. However, that whole day just dragged on forever as the air conditioning was not working in the least bit. I am used to shopping in the mall when the HVAC equipment is in good working order. When it was obviously failing all that day, I was sweating profusely in almost every single store I visited. It was absolutely brutal. I ended up leaving earlier than I ever wanted to, and decided to go eat ice cream to cool off a bit.
