Black Friday



Black Friday is a wonderful opportunity. No, not to buy Christmas gifts. That's only a small part of it. The day of shopping madness is a perfect way to simulate the Zombie Apocalypse. The stores will be full of crazed people trying to snap up goods that are in short supply. It will be a crazy time, a violent time, a time of mercantile madness.

Sure, during this past hurricane season plenty of people got lots of practice stripping store shelves bare, but the rest of the country missed out. Black Friday is here for everyone. All you have to do is show up.

Personally, I'm going to employ the same tactics I plan on using during the collapse of society in a world without rule of law. I'm going to sit tight and avoid going out into the fray. The only way to win is not to play.

The sad truth is that most of the deals aren't really that great. Sure, there will be some loss leaders to get people into the stores. Is is worth risking life and limb to save a few dollars on some electronic gizmo? Heck, I don't even know what the “must have” gift is this year. Is there even such a gift this time around?

Instead of doing battle I'll hang out with my loved ones and chill. My Zen-like calm will be aided by large turkey, cranberry and gravy sandwiches.

You've been warned. Have fun, don't get hurt.

  2. Maybe everyone will think like you and the stores will be almost empty of customers???

    1. Wouldn't it be nice if they just spent time with loved ones?

  3. We headed to the hospital for a TB test reading (needed before we start volunteering there). Almost no traffic on the road - guess everyone was at the mall. Not our bag. Home to start Christmas decorating!

  4. We went into town later in the day, after all the furor was over. Got some batteries at a good price and that was about it.
