Nov. 27

It's only Friday. Crazy feels like it should at least be Saturday. The holiday rush is on. I've never been a big fan of holiday sales. It's so American to make shopping a competitive sport. Advertised specials of low low prices and then the stores only have one or two such items. Thus the first one in gets the low price while everyone else is a "sucker" or "loser." Nuts! At least this year I haven't heard of any deaths as mobs rush stores. I mean, it's nice if you can save money and have more on a budget, but I'm not about to stay up all night, stand in line and get in a fist fight over a cheaper widget. Don't get me wrong. I say bravo to those who fight and win, but I simply refuse to play the game.


  1. Yup! I agree with you on this one Nancy. I prefer shopping like a civilised human being! I'd rather sacrifice the chance of a (not guaranteed) special price then get involved in the competitive pushing and shoving that sales and specials normally engender in otherwise perfectly mellow people. Perhaps I'm just not a very competitive person.

  2. No, Ann, I think you are a smart person!
