Stopping the flow - A Sunday 160


The usually rapid stream
flowed slowly.
Bogging down
by unseen forces.
Ever slower,
then finally halting.
Dammed by
the on rush itself.
Mall exits at Christmas.

This is a Sunday 160.
Take the 160 Challenge if you dare.

Dude there isn't any mall traffic here. I went to two of them (forced by the boss of course) and both times parked right at the door.

This is why I do all my shopping during "off-hours". Terrific 160!

You have quite the knack for spot-on wording and getting the whole story line in.

How funny! We don't have huge malls with huge parking garages here but I remember them from San Francisco. Great post! I added some smoked sausage, cheese and crackers to my post for you!
Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas in your new home.
Stay out of the Mall parking garages!

I love the artwork of traffic, shown in your post, but not the reality of it. You're your usual sly self, Monkey Man. I forgot to do a Sunday 160 today. Next week for sure....

I used to know that traffic. Glad now that I get to admire pictures of it. Stay sane, in and out of malls.

Sunday 160? That's a new theme. Do I dare to attempt? Hmm... Maybe later.

Merry X'mas, friend!
