Rising at 2:00 am for Black Friday?
Are you part of the post-Thanksgiving frenzy of shoppers flooding stores today? Discounts, sales and slashed prices beckon for shoppers in search of the best prices. Personally, I enjoy shopping in a quiet, empty store whenever possible. Loud music, other customers impinging on my personal space and picked-over merchandise make me want to flee the premises. So Black Friday would not be for me.
I don’t believe I’ve ever ventured out to shop on a Black Friday, but a couple of years ago, I happened to be in the environs of one of my favorite stores around 6:00 am on that day. I ventured inside. Empty. Grabbing a few things, nothing particularly caught my attention as being on any more of a significant discount than usual.
Hunting – no way.
Travel – yes.
Exercise – possibly.
Shopping – not so much.
Finishing a project – absolutely.
Prayer – yes.
Decorating for the holidays – not really.
Tending to a sick dog, child or spouse – definitely.
Make it a good holiday weekend.
