There, at the top of my page. How do you like that? It is mainly for my cousins and I. Our most fun day of the year is black Friday.
So, some of you are asking "Why an amusement park to represent shopping?" If you must ask, you must be one of the ones that sleep late on that day. Have you ever been to Six Flags on one of the busiest days of the year? You run into the park when they open the gates only to stand in line, sometimes for hours to ride a ride. When that ride is finished you run to the next ride just as fast as you can to wait in line yet again. That is what Black Friday is all about. You get up early to wait in line (usually outside in the cold) for the doors to open. When they open you and all your "friends" rush into the store, grab your bargains, rush to the check out to wait in yet another line. After you pay, again, you rush to the next store and the process starts all over again, just like an adult amusement park.
Yes, we do get out in the cold, rain, snow, heat, dust... whatever the weather brings, we stand in it!
Yes, we do laugh at all the sleepy, angry, tired of waiting people. Get over it, you know it is going to be a long day, have fun with it, get in the spirit of Christmas.
Yes, we know we do not have to face the crowd, but we like it!
Yes, we do use our cell phones to call each other if we found a good deal, got in a short line and are ready to be picked up.
Yes, we do allow others to go with us, but only if they promise to have a good time and not complain.
Yes, we do make fun of hateful, mean, rude people.
Yes, we have been known to split a bean burrito and a small soda because all we had between us was pocket change and barely enough to purchase said items.
So, Trina and Traci, get your walking/running shoes on and your Starbucks cards ready!
IT IS ALMOST TIME TO SHOP!
