After 20 minutes in line, we decided to walk around the mall instead. This proved to be fun. It was odd---the place also had a "lego adventure center", with a shorter but odd line. This is all like the PT Cruiser, popular at first, but in the long run, very commonplace. I would have preferred to go to the children's aquarium at Fair Park--4 dollar admission instead of 19, and nearly no lines.
We also stopped by Bass Pro Shop. I fish a bit, and do not hunt at all,but somehow these stores are always comfortable for me. I eyed the bargain kayaks with mild but unfulfilled longing.
We tried to go to a Japanese place in Irving for lunch we found via GPS, but it was closed. We went to a Chinese buffet instead. The buffet looked very modest, but proved quite tasty. We were content. We stopped by Bali Slush afterward--I had a frozen yogurt, but my friend's peach smoothie looked grand.
I slept the late afternoon away, and then read Trollope. My wife and I dined on trout at Fishmonger's tonight. I am strategizing an upcoming road trip, and enjoying life in a warm Summer.
