Anywho, I digress …

Loosely based on what might have happened. Or not.

Cooler than Apple. Or not.

Insanely cool

I arranged to meet a friend for lunch outside Borders – a great central landmark with shade, books to browse and seating while I wait.  Now that Borders has closed, there is no shade, no books and no seating.  As I am almost always early, this is a bit of  a pain.  However, it is right across the street from the very cool Apple store, so I switched our meeting point.  No books or seats, but, aaaaah, air conditioning on a hot day 🙂

Anywho, I digress …

While I was hovering by the window, the Sales Associates approached me every few minutes to see if they could help me.  After the fifth request, I looked around and realized that I was one of four people hovering.  The SAs appeared to be actively trying to discourage the new meeting point.

Sales Associate 6:  Welcome to the Apple store. Can I help you find something?

Me:  I am waiting for an astronaut.

SA6:  <Slack-jawed surprise>

Oh yes. I was waiting for an astronaut. Cooler than  the Apple store?  I think so.
