AT THE MALL (aka I’m too old for this!)

imagesWing of a huge mall (no, not the Mall of America); overwhelmed with sensory impressions: the smell of perfumes and soaps mix  with the odors of deep fried foods and the rubber soles of running shoes. 1980s R&R competes with the screech and clunk of mechanical sweepers. Store mannequins model dresses that take me back to the 1960s with their nipped waists, wide belts, and inverted four-inch box pleats. Stores seem to howl for my attention in a way that makes me long for the quiet of the 60s…though not for those skirts with their four-inch inverted box pleats.
