Ask questions.</p><p>Find outwhere youllbe going andwhat youllbe doing.Here are afew questionsto ask:</p><p>1. Were notgoing shop-ping togetherright?</p><p>2. Is thisgoing to cost anything and if yes howmuch?</p><p>3. Is there a maze involved?4. Will we be walking long distances,</p><p>stopping frequently to ogle home goods?If the answer to one or more of your</p><p>questions is yes, youll need to have abargaining chip prepared or youre goingdown.</p><p>Suggestions: If I go with you, can Ispend the day with the guys at theBengals/OSU/insert fav team here game,weekend fishing trip with the guys. Ormy fav, If I go can I finally get thatPorsche Ive been talking about for thelast 40 years.</p><p>Yes its that serious. You need to beprepared, Im warning you. I was not. Ithought I was going on a lake trip, or toan amusement park in the great out-doors, it was going to be a day of excite-ment and fun. The little child in me wasjumping up and down like I was atBounce U on a five-hour bounce ticket.</p><p>Did we go to the lake or the park, NO.We went to a humongous Swedish mazecalled IKEA.</p><p>Lucy made her selections within thefirst two hours, but I should have blindfolded her till we entered the warehousefor pick up. She would make at leastanother 79 stops as we navigated themaze turning right, left, right, left overand over each bringing a scream of joyand OMG I love this store.</p><p>Then came crunch time, trying to stuffeverything into the Vibe. We tried every</p><p>conceivable way but it was a no go. Sawthe sign about a four-hour rental truckfor $19.95 and were rolling up the inter-state before you could say Ochocinco.</p><p>Then came two return trips whichwere limited to about an hour eachtol-erable. Let it be known that there are</p><p>people driving hours to visit this store. Italked to several during our trips.</p><p>Just Be Prepared Boy Scouts. Makesure youre ready with your bargainingchip. Entrepreneurs you may want toconsider opening a sports bar/restaurantacross the street with shuttle service.Your wife could shop, load your vehicleand then call you to let you know its timeto go home. You could grab the shuttleover to the parking lot or she could pickyou up. Youll probably be able to catchat least two full games while she shops ifyou go on the weekend.</p><p>Some interesting bits of informationthat need to be shared immediately:</p><p>1. Americans on the average consumemore than 18 acres of pizza every day.</p><p>(My epitaph: I bought the pizza farm)2.
