I'm old enough to remember when almost everything that could close, did close on Sunday. Department stores, grocery stores, the cleaners, gas stations (not sure on this one, I was young), libraries, and more. It was a day to window shop because the stores were closed. We went for Sunday drives in the country. Now where my dad and mom would take us out into the farmlands and countrysides northwest of Detroit are shoppings centers, housing communities, warehouses, car dealers and more. And they are all open on Sunday.
I started thinking about this when I though I could get away with not blogging on Sunday because, well, it was Sunday. "Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy" ya know. Well, not so much any more. But I digress. Yes, I could shut down for the day. But here I am, blogging away. So maybe I need another reason. An excuse. Somehow not feeling like it is a cop out.
And now that I've written this, this on Sunday, I guess I don't have to worry about taking Sunday off. So there you have it.
I wonder what Socrates would have said?
What do you think?
