I may very well be dating myself here, but it seems like the days of 'running to the mall' or spending an afternoon going store to store at the mall, well, they're long gone. I can't tell you the last time I actually walked the Poughkeepsie Galleria end to end; if I even go, it's usually with a particular store in mind, and then I'm gone.

This recent tease, though, may lead to me spending more time at the mall, especially if my daughter has anything to do with it.
