Mall Visit

I thought it was high time that I checked out the malls in the area. Besides, it was too hot outside and I needed some air-conditioning. Though I didn’t find my favorite (Macy’s), I did find familiar ones and I spent some time browsing. I even got myself a few items that were on sale. It is really Sooner world out here. The mall, fittingly enough, is named after the OU mascot. And the place did appeal to the Sooner spirit as the logo is posted on every item imaginable.

catchy name

There was a food court in the middle of the mall. Chik-Fil-A did stand out because the lights were off and no one was behind the counter. I remembered that it was a Sunday and, in keeping with their beliefs about the Sabbath, this Christian-based restaurant honors the Lord’s Day.

Every now and then, I would look up and see a yellow sign sticking out from narrow hallways inside the mall. They are mostly located in areas where there is an enclosed space. I’ve never seen the inside of a tornado shelter before and I hope I never have to, although it would be interesting to see what it looks like. Having lived in earthquake country, I know to always be prepared for unexpected jolts of nature.

    that’s what I thought, too, but I saw a few of them that were just long narrow hallways (def not the CR)
