Except...all of that is a load of crap. They're clearly not alike in any way, shape or form. Hell, they're not even kept in the same bloody department. Have you ever been inside a Walmart where the shoes and the books were literally in the same place? No, of course not, because they are more closely tied into apparel than they are books (which are usually near all the media stuff, like DVDs, because both are about frakking stories).
So, how was your day?
Update: The bookshelf came at about 5:25 PM EST. The Fedex guy has no idea what happened. They sent two packages to me, apparently, and one of them wasn't supposed to go to me at all. Fun, huh?
