black friday on the other side

Have you ever worked retail on black friday? No? Well let me tell you what it is: It's tiring. It's infuriating. It's tedious. It is not fun.

Have you ever shopped at 4 am on black friday? No? Well let me tell you what it is: FUN! Not that I would know because I was in my kerchief, dreaming of sugar plums at that hour, but my dear husband ventured into the cold morning at 4 am to battle the crowds for guitar hero at a serious discount. And his report? "It was fun. I'm taking you next year." Like it's a trip to bermuda or something. But anyway he was victorious and we've been playing guitar hero nonstop since then (excepting our road trip to be documented next) and we are all glad he went.

Ben is a brave man. I think about it every year but I just am not sure I have it in me! Way to go Beenie! :)

I would HATE to be in retail on that day! Just the thought of it gives me the chills. Sonny usually goes out that morning if there is something we need, but I got my shopping done early. He likes it too, by the way. Maybe because it turns shopping into a full-contact sport or something. The thrill of the hunt? I don't know, but it's funny.
