Skier Wysz (4:40:47 PM): just so you know i will be unavailable fri night/sat morning as i will be attending the grand opening of the apple store — christiana mall in newark, DE
parec02 (4:41:08 PM): is this a particulary good apple store?
Skier Wysz (4:41:20 PM): no just a mall store
parec02 (4:41:29 PM): like the one 20 minutes from our school?
Skier Wysz (4:41:38 PM): yeah
Skier Wysz (4:41:49 PM): as far as i know
Skier Wysz (4:42:06 PM): do you have a point?
parec02 (4:42:33 PM): now, i probably shouldn't ask, but why are you driving to a different state to visit a store we have 20 minutes away? you don't need to answer if you think it's a stupid question....
Skier Wysz (4:43:19 PM): it's a grand opening, meaning i get a free t-shirt if i am one of the first 100 customers. also there is an imac/camera/printer/etc. giveaway

parec02 (4:44:59 PM): this t-shirt, it's made out of 100 dollar bills, right?
