My big cultural experience

On Sept. 10 I drove out of Ohio, across Indiana and into Illinois. I stayed in Vandalia, IL, and right behind the hotel was a Walmart Supercenter, so I moseyed on over. It took about 10 minutes to cross the huge parking lot on foot, and I suspect I might be the first person to ever arrive under her own steam. Despite the parking lot being almost empty, the cars were drawn to me like flies, I must have been accidentally walking in their usual parking-lot migratory routes. The place was huge- I only visited the food section and it was as big as a medium-large grocery store back home. Here's a photo taken from my hotel room:

    Maybe this is where the Simpsons got the term "Sprallmart" from.
