(Technically this isn't a wordless post but realized I had to add words to explain the photo)
I was just in Orlando, Florida for the incredible Global Pet Expo. My flight back home didn't leave until late in the day, so I had time to check out the sites and chase a few geckos on various lawns. (I have this thing for chasing geckos - they're just so darn cute and so chaseable) I would have liked to seen Seaworld or Universal Studios but there just wasn't enough time before having to get to the airport.
So I figured I might as well do a little shopping to pass the time. I made my way to this MEGA Outlet Mall - something we really don't have in Canada. The Orlando Premium Outlets on Vine Avenue had 150 stores, many of them high-end retailers. And shoppers everywhere, wandering around with fancy merchandise bags and Starbucks coffees.
To be honest.... I don't even like shopping. I like the people watching much more. However, I did manage to buy THE best item for sale there. And it was my one and only purchase in Orlando. A rubbery egg that you throw on a wall and it sticks. They're called Splat Back Toys.
Now how fantastic is this? I bought two - one for myself and one for my brother David, who I am constantly sending silly things to for his engineering office. (He's a big kid at heart) I'm thinking it looks like a freaky breast implant. Guess I could have got two for myself as bra inserts to feel like a sexy Chick(en).
It was definitely a worthwhile adventure before the airport. Got some exercise walking all around Consumerville, did some serious people watching and left smiling with my successful purchase. If I go back next year I am SO getting the Splat Rat (Note: No intent of malice against rats. Just like the fact it rhymes)
