Ahh Black Friday, just the name send chills down my spine. The image of eager shoppers desperate for a bargain. Their red noses pressed, or frozen to the shop doors at the ungodly hour of 3:00 am! Giggle, I was one of those anxious shoppers many years ago. After a tug of war over a sweater ensued, reminiscent of an old Laverne and Shirley episode I decided you can count me out.
I know the deals are amazing, but all deals are. I stand stead fast that black Friday will remain blacked out on my calendar.
Never again will I withstand the harsh winter wind that freezes even the smallest nose drizzle to your nostril. Never again will I endure the pushing, shoving, and sometimes ridiculous behavior of the half awake holiday bargain shoppers. That’s right, I shout loudly, not I my friend!
But, to those of you who dare participate in this ongoing ritual. I send praise for your fortitude, your perseverance, and your savvy shopping skills. I lend you my cozy mittens and pat you on the back with a smile. I wish you well on your journey. God speed and happy shopping. I’ll be her drinking tea.
