dreaded black friday

I told Dorothy I would accompany her on her shopping frenzy the day after Thanksgiving, but when the alarm went off at 3:00am, I didn't wake up. She woke me to tell me she was leaving. "You should have got me up", I protested, but she just kissed me good-bye and drove off into the cold Oklahoma night. I never saw her again...... until 13 hours later.

The line begins to form outside of Best Buy. Dorothy patiently waits in line at a Target store.

Hubby went to Best Buy, I went to Kohls. I hate shopping but this is the day I get it all done.

Your husband is a courageous man. He deserves a reward.

So, they weren't kidding about people lining up in the middle of the night to get ready to go shopping!

You know...I have never been able to shop on that day! Living overseas...or being broke because I spent all the money on the Thanksgiving dinner...always hits me. I should start saving now for next year!
