Notes in hand, I headed home and cleaned up the machine.
To delay removal, I drafted a mysterious "don't worry, it is being handled" note and affixed it to the front.
Loaded in the car, I planned my entrance. Walking in with this contraption under my arm was going to look suspicious.
Worse, if I avoided walking through anchor stores, the shortest path to the center court brought me right past the concierge desk, staffed by two comely but bored young women.
There was no hope they wouldn't see me, but I took a chance that they would just assume I was doing something I was supposed to be doing. Otherwise, why would I walk right past them?
I steeled my nerves and went for it.
I should have brought a dolly. By the time I walked past Ruth's Steak house, my arm was tired, and as I trudged in through the automatic doors, I had to shift my hold on the enameled case to avoid dropping it.
I stared straight ahead as I walked past the concierge desk. I hugged the opposite wall, making it less likely that they would shout over to me from behind their counter. I really didn't think they would jump up and come after me.
Then I saw the security guard.
He was walking in my direction, but he wasn't looking at me. He was looking past me, his eyes on the door I just walked through.
I made it.
I walked onto the Hyundai carpet, squeezed past this guy and plopped the time machine down next to the flat panel T.V.
Immediately I took out my phone and pretended to answer a call. I didn't want to give anyone there an opportunity to start a conversation.
Still chatting on the phone, I pulled out my camera and snapped some pictures. My jerk boss apparently didn't trust me to get the kiosk placement just right.
It looks great and completely at home in the Hyundai Microshowroom. Hopefully I've created a situation where the mall people think it is a Hyundai thing, and the Hyundai people think it is a Mall thing.
Cross your fingers it lasts longer than those ashtrays did at Arden mall. If you are in the area, cruise by and see if anyone has fixed it yet.
Just don't reboot it! The tuning is off by four days!
