So yesterday’s phone conversation went something like this.
Amy: Hey guess what!?
Chad: What honey?
Amy: I almost wet myself when I pulled into the mall parking lot a second ago.
Chad: Okay, uh why?
Amy: They opened a Crate and Barrel at Southpoint. It just popped up overnight! I almost texted you earlier to say “OMG Crate and Barrel at Southpoint!” Then I realized that you probably wouldn’t care.
Chad: OMG? Really, you were going to type that? And you’re right I wouldn’t have cared. But I am glad you’re so happy about it honey.
Amy: I’m going to pop in before I come home so it might be awhile. Oh wait, I’m driving by now and it’s not open yet. The lights are on but there is nothing inside yet. I can’t wait! Okay, so I guess I’ll be home in a minute.
Obviously Chad doesn’t share my love for the Crate, the Barrel or sarcastic uses of text talk but I am pretty stoked to have a CB store about 2 miles from the casa. That’s right – stoked.

Update: Just received an e-mail from CB that their Crabtree Valley Mall location is closing on January 23rd. Just when I thought I was going to have the Raleigh and Durham CB hook-up!
