Sunday was the perfect day to be in Old Town, San Diego, and be a kid again! I entirely blame our lunch with home made sandwiches and coffee at Starbucks for that. Something in the coffee must have broken the usual body alarms.
On a war path when she shops, after she bought her decaf coffee grind.
First, off to the candy store where they made hand made taffy. I peruse the choices. Do you have nougat? No? What am I going to buy then?
Ooh, they have fudge! I quickly walk over to the second isle to the end. I tap on the glass with my index finger (isn't it what kids always do?). No, no, not that kind, but the chocolate orange.
The bells did not start ringing after the coffee and the lunch, and then the chocolate. It did not sink the amount of calories and caffeine I had taken in.
Pretty soon we saw a corner where they had reopened an ice cream store. To commemorate that fact I had a big waffle cone with enough room for 2 1/2 scoop of dark chocolate ice cream (but paid for one scoop!. You think I had enough sugar and caffeine now?
This old scale is shiny, but it didn't have a good day. No one wanted to stand on him today.
The following store had colorful big garden pots, statues and chimes on it's large outside patio.
Somehow I was so focused on the chimes, that we never made it inside this store. We tried to sound at least 6 chimes, just like all the other little kids.
It sounded like an open air bell concert!
While hubby was reading Slum Dog Millionaire, I went out of the book store to visit another few of my favorite stores. My most important purchase today was at Crazy Shirt.
I had been eying the chocolate shirts for 3 years now, and never had the guts to go through with it. But as I said, the alarms did not work today.
For you outside of the USA, these shirts are honest to goodness dyed in chocolate. Not paint, but chocolate.
I saw this shirt, but I seemed to be in the kid's section. I held it up and asked with a cracked voice, "This is a kid's shirt, right?" The sales girl responded cheerily, "Oh, but we have 'em for adults too."
See all Chocolates
Hear all Chocolates
Eat all Chocolates
On the sleeve: the chocolate dyed logo
On the back: the little satisfied monkey
What can I say? The kid in me was yelling and screaming, "Take me home TODAY."
