When I was a kid one of the activities that I hated most was “browsing.” My mother would say, “Oh, let’s just go browse.”
Are you serious, lady? Why don’t you buy me something? What is this browsing?
What a horrible word: browsing. It didn’t make any sense to me.
Of course, now I can buy what I want–within reason–but I like to browse, at least bookstores and record shops.
Diane hipped me to this piece on the death of browsing . Sad, really.
