Buy, buy, buy

Shopping seems to be something approaching a national sport. I’m no mall rat*, and I find shopping malls like Pentagon City, which I pass through to catch the Metro in the basement, rather overwhelming. But on the rare occasions I actually shop here, I do at least get some exercise because if I need two things, the stores that sell them are inevitably at opposite ends of the mall.

* For my overseas readers, the definition from the American Heritage Dictionary is “a person, especially a teenager or young adult, who frequently passes time wandering through shopping malls.”
