Sofi texted me on mid-day Monday and asked if I could take her to Montgomery Mall to do some gift shopping for her dad. I cleared my afternoon and we headed out. Sofi and I walked into the mall, masked and ready with a cash budget of $22. I asked Sofi if she wanted to see anything for herself and she headed straight to Claire’s. She had gotten her ears pierced three weeks ago and was ready to change them out. I wanted to buy her whatever she wanted and I pretty much did. I also bought a cute avocado case for my AirPods. Then we headed to the Amazon 4-star store (which easily was the most crowded in the mall) and bought a nice gift for Mike that came in at just under $22.
