Ode to Men -- of Certain Age ---Shopping

I can give (for my friends who seek it) advice on shopping in NY for anything from clothes to chocolates, but I dont enjoy shopping or chocolates. It is just information I have because I like all sorts of information.

I went shopping for shoes and clothes today. I am more bling-bling than Eddie Bauer, so the "usual" places I go to have the property that without much thinking I can find unusual things. And sadly, I noticed today that inches are not what they used to be, they seem to be getting shorter, and I dont fit into the sizes I used to. :)

Yeah, well-known phenomenon. The universe is expanding and the measurement units for clothing are shrinking over time.

No, seriously its true. I noticed sometime ago that 30'' in Pakistan is equal to 28'' in US. No one believed me, and then I found this on abc. Its so mean.

Can you tell me why you don't like shopping?Because today everyone likes to buy new items or products especially via online shopping.Some people do online shopping on a regular interval.But i think its not good to waste large money over shopping.Always buy products on a right time.
