My retail moment

December 21st, 2009 (03:06 am)

current mood: amused

Sunday afternoon I went to my neighborhood Borders to pick up a book for a toddler I know. I was passing a display on my way to the stairs when a Beatles Trivial Pursuit game caught my eye. Beatles! I would be so lousy at that, even though I used to be great at Trivial Pursuit.

But I digress. Next to that board game was another one:

I took the top one off the stack and turned over the box to read more about it. Just then, I was reminded of my days in retail when a twenty-something man walked by and barely stopped long enough to say, "That could be fun, right?" before he snatched the next one off the stack and headed down the stairs.

Ah, those last few days of frantic holiday shopping, frequently by desperate and clueless males. I've had a lot of fun imagining the facial expressions of his possible recipients when they open their gift.
