Actually I'm going to talk about Day 3 tomorrow/later today when I get home, most likely, because a lot went on and I'm just too fried to write coherently.

I will say that I experienced sadness when I stopped at the Walmart for yogurt on the way back to the Days Inn.
They have freezer/refrigerator cases in the food center whose lights have been equipped with proximity switches.
The cases lit up so hopefully as I approached, displaying their wares to my dully surprised gaze, but I passed by
without stopping, for it was late and I was tired and I had no use for most of those things anyway.

Still, I felt obscurely bad for disappointing their nonexistent little robot hearts.

Gah, I didn't even think of that. I was wandering through a Walmart frozen section the other day and the lights kept turning on and off. I had completely forgotten that they had put those sensors on them.

This was the first time I'd run into them; one of the few shortcomings of the Commonwealth is that (apparently) Walmart isn't allowed to build the big hypermarts with Food Centers that they have in Maryland and Minnesota.
