I wish I had some notable impulse buys from the day but given all the money I was spending, I was less inclined to spend needlessly. Oh wait, we bought a pizza stone. That was needless. Another good moment was in the Nike Store. I went to look at the packaging on a pair of wristbands, which would have been a dumb purchase as I have a few sets of wristbands that I previously bought senselessly on past trips like this. The packaging said "Suggested Retail:$10.00. Our Price: $9.99." WHAT A DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was almost convinced that the 0.1% savings was worth it.
After a well-deserved nap, we ended the day by taking a walk down to a Greek restaurant in our neighborhood and taking in dinner on the rooftop with a view of the Sears Tower about a half mile to the west. We ate the most garlicky garlic mashed potatoes ever, which my breath was still paying for this morning. It was a fantastic evening to be outside. Been waiting for one of those.
Finally, as an update to the tomato blog, the tomatoes are indeed dead. They were pulled out of their pots and laid to rest in an adjacent bush on Saturday. R.I.P.
