I was thinking we could try Sur La Table, says Musette.
Okay, I say, even though that store, and William Sonoma, always lets us down, whether we’re looking for gifts for our families or kitchen equipment for Musette.
We go in and then right back out – another let down.
Everything in the mall that we are at is designer, expensive stuff.

The whole city is a mall, says Musette.
About a block out, and I recommend we get back on the subway and head home.
It’s pointless, I say. We never find anything in this city.
