As I mentioned in the last post, I was recently in Branson with the in-laws on vacation for a weekend, and I knew the women would be doing some shopping. There’s a few outlet malls there, plus the newer promenade mall. I can take only so much shopping, unless it’s for electronics or games.
I was talking about this with one of my friends, and he had an interesting suggestion for something I could do while the women are shopping:
Find an all-you-can-eat buffet and try to make a day of it. If your wife mentions that you probably don’t need to eat that much, you can always reference the fact that she probably doesn’t really need to shop that much either. Tell her that the sooner she gets back from shopping to pick you up, that is the sooner you will stop eating.
I like this idea. It would tie-in with the idea of the last post where a store offers an atmosphere for men along with lots of nachos and other good eats. But even without such a place, there are plenty of all-you-can-eat restaurants in Branson. If my wife thinks I should eat less to help me lose weight, she can shop less, which will save money. So it’s a win-win situation!
I mentioned this idea to my wife, but she failed to see the logic of it…
