I like shopping on Black Friday. I enjoy the crowds and watching some people make fools of themselves. The sales are good. It's all around a fun experience for me. Well, today was very different.
Nowhere that I had to go was completely packed or overrun by ravaging sale-seekers. I went to Kohl's, Best Buy, and Wally World and I didn't have trouble finding parking once. I never waited in any obscenely long line. And I didn't not find what I was looking for. (Although I did forget something. Oh well.) Then I looked at my watch. It was 9:00AM when I got to the first store, Kohl's. Well no wonder it wasn't packed. The really big crowds had already come and gone because Kohly's opened at 3AM this morning! Three freaking AM! That's only . . . like . . . three hours after yesterday! Black Friday is literally becoming the whole day. (Actually, some stores open at 10 the night before. I guess that would be like Black-Thursday-Night, or Black-Black-Friday-Eve.)
Bah! I think I liked it better when stores opened at normal times and crazy people just lined up early to get in before all of the other crazy people to get their Tickle-Me-Elmo before the other crazy guy with a gun shows up.
On another note, happy belated Thanksgiving!
I was dog-sick two days before Thanksgiving, which explains why there was no post Wednesday. (And no, it wasn't eggnog that made me sick.)
Now I'm off to read all of y'all's blogs that I'm a little behind on. :)
