My kids are not quite old enough to go to the mall by themselves, so I take them every now and then. Often, I will let them go do their own things, I will let them go do their own things, just so long as we agree on meeting back up again in a specific time and place. Walking around in general doesn’t appeal to me as much anymore, and there is not all that much that interests me at the mall, so I simply enjoy the climate control. Sometimes I will sit down on a bench and just enjoy the air conditioning while I wait for my kids to return from their shopping or whatever it is they like to do, it’s not like they have all that much money. Yep, you guessed it, I’m one of those old guys that sits on the bench and people watches while he enjoys the air conditioning. I even meet other people and we strike up a conversation as we enjoy the coolness of the climate control, despite the fact that we’ve never met in our lives. My kids think it’s weird and uncool or whatever, but I think it’s just being sociable. I have to say that the heating system in the mall is also pretty good during the winter. It doesn’t take long for me to need to take my jacket off once I’m inside. It’s these little things like good climate control that makes my visit to the mall better for me, considering the fact that I’m not particularly interested in being there.
