Me & My Muse – Day 144: Shop Till You Drop

If you are currently reading this, then you’re already late for the sales.  The sales that many hope to get on Black Friday.

And fortunately, I can say that I’m not one of them.  I am not a Black Friday shopper.  Never have, and never will be.


Muse:  Neither am I.  I don’t know how some people can even bother to stand in those long lines.  It’s crazy if you ask me.

Yes it is.  What are you still doing up?

Muse:  There were so many dishes from Thanksgiving that it took me forever to get them done.  How did it go?

It went fine.  Not all of the dishes that I named were there.  There wasn’t any candied yams or cottage cheese.  Instead, there was some squash with marshmallows and some fruit salad.  Dessert followed a couple hours later.

Muse:  I had about the same here.  With so many to feed, it took a while to go through the table.  Anyway,  I need to finish cleaning.  I’ll see you in the morning, when the company leaves!


What more can I say about Black Friday?  Only this.  It’s a retail holiday that I never want to associate with.  The lines are too long, despite the deals that are promised.  I’m looking forward to Cyber Monday, a day that I prefer much more than a holiday dedicated to the die-hard shopper.

Today’s high is going to be 29 degrees and the silver lining will be getting paid when I work later at the pizza pit.

For those of you who love cashing in on the deals on Black Friday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

Muse:  There.  The dishes are done.  I can finally go off to bed!
