Buy It Now
"Where are you?"
"I'm at Jo-Ann Fabrics with my friend."
"But it's dinner time."
"Look in the refrigerator and eat some leftovers."
This is nothing new. Mark has been haunting the malls since he was a child and figured out how to steer a car towards the light. What is bothering me the last few weeks is his activity on the internet. Lately packages have been arriving at the house. Large flat boxes, large square boxes, small boxes, every kind of box, with return addresses from around the country. Mark has discovered Ebay. I don't know how much he spends on it, or what exactly he is buying. Some of it is hard to hide, like the dolls, but whatever he is buying I hope it is just as easy to resell on Ebay when he goes broke. Of course the up side of these online shopping sprees is that it keeps him closer to the kitchen, where he belongs.
