I have a confession to make. I have never, not once in my life, gone to a store on Black Friday.
I remember the year my boss went to visit his wife’s family for Thanksgiving, and they all went to the Mall of America on Black Friday. My apologies to those of you who would love to do this, but to me this would be the lowest circle in Hell. You know, the one underneath Satan.
Being packed into an enclosed space with hordes of frantic shoppers, pushing and shoving to get to the best deals, is sort of what I envision the zombie apocalypse will be like. Except these zombies trample you to death for a DVD instead of eating your brains. Frankly, I don’t think that’s much of an improvement.
So today I’m staying in, eating leftover pie, and reading a good book. Nice, quiet, and stress-free. What plans do you have? Did you brave the crowds, or are you hiding from the rest of humanity?
