Black Friday

I'm behind on my blog but here's the Black Friday story.

So Black Friday was to quote a friend of mine, “glorious”. I did it on about 2 hours sleep after staying out pretty late on Thanksgiving night. I made it to Kohl’s at 3:25 AM to find that their were about 100 people in line in front of me. I braved the cold for about another 30 minutes until the fine establishment opened up at 4 AM. What shocked me while I was waiting in line is that there were some people waiting who didn’t even know what they wanted. They were just there. Well, I eat those people for breakfast because I went directly to the comforter set that I’d scouted on and circled in the flyer. It was the only one there in the size and color I wanted. This makes me giddy with delight. I saved $50.

From Kohl’s, I went to the mall to hit Sears, JC Penney, Express, Bath & Body Works, New York & Company, and the Limited. They really get me with those “spend this amount of money and get this scarf, watch, etc for free” gimmicks. I’m a sucker for it every time. I was only supposed to go in JC Penney, Sears, and Bath & Body Works but the others wound up seducing me inside.

After the mall, it was Ulta Beauty, Best Buy, and Home Depot. Home Depot was basically a bust because by the time I got there the tape measure set I was looking for was already gone. Due to only 2 hours of sleep, by about 8 AM, I was behaving like a drunk person. I’m drunk alright; drunk off the bargains. I don’t have a problem and I don’t need rehab. You can’t make me go.

On the way home at like 11:30 AM, I stopped at Jimmy John’s to pick up lunch. I asked the guy behind the counter if they were doing any Black Friday deals. He responded, “We did but you had to be here at 5 AM”. Sorry dude, I was elsewhere in a heated shopping frenzy. Maybe next year.
