All these worlds are yours except Europa

I was in Walmart today and they have these flat screens that sense when you walk by, they come on and try and sell you stuff. It's kind of surreal. This is a new store so it's always kind of empty for a Walmart and I get a sense of isolation and space in there. I always feel like I'm in a movie myself or something.

Anyway I was walking by the cereal department, and of course I was thinking about, well,.. cereal because that's all I saw, and suddenly this screen comes to life and this woman starts telling me all of the things I could do with Frosted Flakes.. Very strange..

So I stopped and watched the program about cereal. After a while I expected her to say, "All these worlds are yours execpt Europa. Attempt no landings there.."

LOL, guess I'll have to watch that movie!

What I want to know is, did you buy the cereal?

I think that would freak me out a little bit.. catch me off guard, scare me if I'm in one of my foggy brain days!

No I didn't buy cereal. I kept waiting for Jersey Shore to come back on..

That is super creepy!

Jules - that quote is in the book too.

It really is strange, especially if you are shopping late as the place is pretty much empty. And you know there's someone watching you on security cameras too.
