It's coming! How low will they go? Wanna flat screen T.V? That seems to be the hot ticket item this year. Of course, you could stand in long lines at 3 am in the morning to try and be first one it at Best Buy or Circuit City. I've been there a few times. Never did get in early.
I like shopping, so standing in long lines with the expectation of a fabulous deal is not usually a detraction for me. However, this year I don't feel like it. The economy is in the tank and I'm tired. I don't want to stand in line! I don't want to get up at O'dark thirty to get there first..(and I'm never first anyway, someone else always gets up even earlier, God Bless 'em). So, I was resigned to just watching it on T.V. Which stores had the biggest rush? Wal-Mart? (usually) Where were the fights over the last hot toy? Wal-Mart? (usually)
Then I opened my email today and I have a message..Black Friday Blues no more. Great deals, no long lines. The email was from Amazon. Now, I don't usually shop online. But I got to thinkin' that Black Friday sounds much better in my jammies with some hot steamin' coffee and a lap quilt.
I think that's where I'll be headed on Friday morning. Just to keep in the spirit of things I'll have my oldest get up early to make the coffee.
