The New IKEA

Lord. The humanity. All of Central Florida was in the new IKEA Orlando yesterday. I cannot understand it. So many people that you couldn't stop and look at anything. I swear I had that anxiety "can't swallow" feeling. Decided pretty quickly that I didn't need that $12.00 coffee press. It would probably let the grounds through anyway. Sam hung in there though. The best part was that we recognized the juggler at the front door. It was an afterthought to stop by. Sam and I had been at the Orlando Science Center for a Boyscout trip. Should have just driven home, but the traffic was heavy.
We drove over to Mall at Millenia and ate at the Cheesecake Factory.
A swarm of people there as well. We sat next to 2 couples. One had been married for only 7 months---sitting next to each other. The other was a Asian couple who thought Sam was pretty funny eating his spaghetti. They were all very nice. Makes you believe there are still cordial nice people out there. Picked up a couple of things at Anthropologie. Walked around. The traffic was still heavy when we left. Wow. Guess I'll be shopping online this year. So you think there will be nice people to talk with online at Target? hmmm.
