An Actual Conversation I Had With a Friend Last Night

Moi: I think I'd like to write a book about malls.
Friend: Malls?
Moi: Yes, malls. I'm fascinated by malls. I worked in them for years during high school and college.
Friend: You'd have to find an angle. I read an article today about the National Mall down in D.C. I'll forward it to you.
Moi: Um, that's not the same kind of mall. I'm pretty sure there's no Aunt Annie's on the National Mall.

This book isn't exactly what I have in mind, but it's refreshing to see that other people have examined malls.
