Today I felt much better. After making my way back to the hotel after the day's business at the state capitol, I got to feeling a little hungry and headed over to the Mall of America. During my previous two trips to the Twin Cities I'd never bothered to see the place. But, it was just down the street, and like I said--I was hungry!
Anyway, not much to report about the Mall of America. It's just a big, big, BIG mall...except that it has a roller-coaster in the middle of it all. That whole area was named after Snoopy, but much to my disappointment, they did not play the Peanuts' theme. But I did buy myself a brand new black leather jacket at a leather store that was having a going-out-of-business sale. Not to mention the fact that I finally had appetite enough to consume an oreo blizzard from Dairy Queen. I was about to walk into the Barnes & Noble store, but they literally shut the gate right in front of my face.
To continue my narrative in complete disregard of the chronological sequence in which which events transpired, my dinner was at a sport's bar in the mall called "Players." Hmmm... In any event, I decided to have a Foster's to go along with my burger and fries. I decided then and there that Fosters is one lousy beer. Or am I just feeling a little sick still?
