i had to go to the mall today

and was quite literally grabbed at two separate locations
by those dead sea salt scrub/nail buffer kiosk people.
and they start buffing/scrubbing
even as i'm walking past saying:

no thanks
i already have one of these
i have to go
i really don't want to buy this
i don't want a deal special for me
I HAVE TO GO
argh.

i must avoid this mall
before it turns me into a grouchy-person.

this isn't the first (or second or third) time it's happened.
one cherished memory is a time they were buffing elise and she yelled to me from across the mall to come rescue her, and i spent considerable time trying to convince them that she really had to use the bathroom and we already have those things they try to sell for $25 (that we got at sally's beauty for $1).

Sometime last December Bryan went to the mall alone to do some Christmas shopping and was somehow similarly attacked by these nail-buffing vampires. He came home with one verrry shiny nail and was extremely embarrassed by it. As I recall, he even tried scratching at the nail with his pocket knife or something to make it not so shiny. It didn't work. Eventually, though, it went back to normal.
