Don't Worry Be Happy

Yesterday we braved the mall. I hate the mall. Essentially I hate people who crowd the mall. So a mall on a Saturday. Not. My. Scene. But we wanted to see a movie and it was the convenient location, so off we went.

When we left the movie, I was traumatized by the aftereffects of the plot. ("I Am Legend" is not for the faint of heart my friends. ) Also, the crowds had increased tenfold. I guess Saturday night the mall is the place to be. For. Everyone. But. Me.

Then. We hit the parking lot.

And found our car had been spray-painted with a smiley face. We stared at one another astonished. The universe was obviously sending us a message. Don't worry. Be happy.

We giggled most of the way home.

I mean, what can you do, right? I can't hate the mall any more than I already did. And all we could think of was some wacko vandals giggling their way around the parking lot spraying their cheerful paint on car windows.

And luckily - it came off easily today.

Although I was almost sad to see it go.

I'm with you on hating the mall scene nowadays. Way too fast paced for me. I'm so glad you took the happy face in stride, it cracked me up too. The happy bandit strikes again, eh?

At least you had sunny, optimistic vandals. I hate malls too. I haven't been in one in years. Thank goodness for the internets.

I love it! What a nice contrast to the hell that malls have become. :D

Crazy times we live in.

Malls are evil. It's true. I especially hate the mall in the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas but, overall, the mall people can keep the whole scene. It's just not for me.

Online shopping? Quick shipping? Direct to my door? Divine.

They spray painted on your car?? I think I would have been pissed... but I'm glad that you were able to laugh at it. And atleast it did come off.

Hate malls, but love my daughter; therefore, I go, but I have a strict time limit. It varies store-to-store. Hot Topic? I can last about 90 seconds.

If it came off easily, might have been window chalk. 'Tis true there are more offensive things they could have painted on--good for you for seeing the lighter side.
