There used to be this store at our mall called "All Wound Up". In it was every windup toy you could possibly imagine. Things crawling on the floor, climbing up walls, buzzing around on the ceiling. The whole experience was very - kinetic. Frenetically kinetic, in fact. I could only take that place for a few minutes before I had to leave. (We do, however, have one purchase from there - a huge plastic cockroach with glowing eyes that zips around on the floor wiggling its legs. If you tap it with your toe, it changes its bearing and shifts into warp drive.) I think, if this store still exists and has outlets in Florida, that this woman you described would be PERFECT there!

Folks like that are typically kept sedated in rubber rooms until the job postings for seasonal holiday workers are announced. After the January inventory is complete, they'll be tucked away until next year!

I can't listen at hyper speed, let alone speak that quickly. I would have run out of the place. Literally. You showed great determination in staying to actually purchase the gift!

Huh, I'm surprised to read you saying someone talks fast. I've spoken with you and I swear you could set world records.

Yeepers. Reason number 3987 to avoid the mall this year. Or really, *Any* shopping away from the computer... Gah...
