Favorite Girl has been very curious about all the media hoopla regarding “Black Friday” and, since we’ve never gone shopping on the day after Thanksgiving, we got up at 5:15 am in order to give it a try. My intent was more for people-watching and the experience, rather then actually shopping. I was shocked at the number of people out so early. As we drove past Wal-Mart, I noticed EVERY parking spot was taken.
Our first stop was at Kohls and, as I walked in, I noticed the extremely long lines at the check-out. So we poked around, didn’t see anything we couldn’t live without and left. Next stop was Panera Bread for breakfast. We went to the mall, picked up a couple things, then came home to take a nap.
After all was said and done, once was enough for me. It’s back to sitting next to the fireplace with the TV on and shopping on-line.
Did anyone else brave the early morning craziness?
