Christmas Shopping Christmas shopping . . . check! Well for the most part at least. Trixie and I spent a few hours downtown today and I picked up gifts for my parents, my brothers and their significant others, and my neices and nephews. Freedom Flashlights for everyone!!! At least for the adults. We went to a smaller locally owned toy store to pick out presents for the kids. They had lots of board games, card games, brain teasers, childrens books, and unique hand puppets. Most of the stuff they carry is simple and old school, not a lot of the electronic mumbo jumbo that seems so prevelant in childrens toys today. The two women running the store were really helpful in pointing out what sort of things would be appropriate for the age groups we were looking for. I don't know why but I always get annoyed by anyone trying to sell me anything. So as soon as they started asking questions and recomending various gifts my gut reaction was to turn and walk out the door. It's not like they were being pushy or anything, just trying to be helpful. I finally gave into their line of questioning a tried to pay attention to what they were saying about the various items. In the end I was glad I did, otherwise we would have been in there for hours trying to figure shit out. We ended up with some great toys that I'm sure will be appreciated. In fact I wouldn't mind having a few of them for myself ;-) And all this without having to step foot int the dreaded mall!!!
