Memories of America 2013

2013 2013 2013 <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><span style="text-align: justify;">When we were in San Fransisco, one of the things we did was go shopping. In Union Square we had the opportunity to wander around some of the big American chain department stores, like </span><a href="http://www.macys.com/" style="text-align: justify;">Macy's</a><span style="text-align: justify;"> and </span><a href="http://www.bloomingdales.com/" style="text-align: justify;">Bloomingdales</a><span style="text-align: justify;">. As we wandered around Macy's, it occurred to me that it was kind of like an American travelling all the way to the UK and then wasting their time visiting the nearest branch of </span><a href="http://www.debenhams.com/" style="text-align: justify;">Debenhams</a><span style="text-align: justify;">.</span><br /><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">However, there was one thing I wanted from Bloomingdales that I wasn't leaving without. My very own, authentic Little Brown Bag.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://distilleryimage9.s3.amazonaws.com/ff982178c01a11e2a57122000a1fbe0e_7.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://distilleryimage9.s3.amazonaws.com/ff982178c01a11e2a57122000a1fbe0e_7.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I thought it would be weird to just find a counter and ask them if I could just have the bag. So we wandered the floors trying to find something small and cheap that I could buy, to have a genuine reason to get a bag. I had to try really hard to contain my joy when the man at the counter asked "would you like a bag?" and didn't mind at all that I had to pay 10 cents for it! What we bought was this:</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DRrJ_DHO2TE/UctmdjsFGMI/AAAAAAAABgY/R_cpYP_BpzE/s1600/DSC03290.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DRrJ_DHO2TE/UctmdjsFGMI/AAAAAAAABgY/R_cpYP_BpzE/s400/DSC03290.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">A burger press.
