Black Friday


(isn't this FUN?)


3:45 a.m. - Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! The lines are forming already!!


4:15 a.m. - (Screech out of the driveway, run over a suspicious bump, and knock over the neighbor's garbage can) Leave it!! You can pick it up later! And the cat will be fine!


4:40 a.m. - Park anywhere!! Here is fine! I can see the line, it's wrapping all the way around the building! Oh wait, this is a handicapped space! Get out so I can break your leg!! It will be SO worth it, trust me!


4:59 a.m. - Ok, it's almost time. Quick. Memorize this map. I'll run to the automotive department and grab the $12.50 laptop and the Texas Edition Secede Or Die iPod. You head straight for the deli department for the 3-Million-Piece-Baby-Einstein-Build-Your-Own-Miniature-Manhattan-Lego Kit, then run to the left and search the freezer case for the 75-inch TV. And they're all out of carts, so DON'T DROP IT!


5:00 a.m. - THE DOOR IS OPENING!! GOOOOOOO!


6:00 a.m. - What are you doing out here in the car??!! Do you KNOW how long I've been looking for you??!! Where's the TV? And what is this wimpy 1-Million-Piece-Build-Eau-Claire-Wisconsin-Lego Kit? Who the heck wants that?

Oh well. I didn't do much better. The laptops were gone by 5:01. And they only had one iPod. I was first in line for it, but this little kid lit my hair on fire and his sister grabbed the iPod and ran. I guess I deserved it for pushing their mom into that bin of discount movies.

Hey, I did find a copy of Elf for $3.99. Let's go home and watch it. I just love the holidays!

Please tell me you didn't subject yourself to that for real. I refused to do it. After my encounters last year I said never again. It is not worth it.

Climb under the duvet and we'll let you know when it's January.

Black Friday... I don't get it?

Lily Robinson said...

A very good example of why I don't do it!

Rae: Oh yes, I was out there with our friends from Eau Claire (hence the little slam). It was fun, really! Though the TV I wanted was sold out in the first half-a-second.

Fran: Thank you! That would be most helpful. haha

Jim: Black Friday is the retailers' name for the day after Thanksgiving - when hopefully they make enough money to put them "in the black." Now you know! Get out there and participate next year!

Lily: I think you have to look at it as sport. Though I probably won't do it again next year unless our crazy friends make me.

What a crazy hour! But it sounded like fun! Funny as always!
