The appeal of diving into the mess of day after Thanksgiving shopping eludes me. Fine, there are deals to be had, although I wonder if they're often as good as they're perceived to be. Camping out a couple days for one of them strikes me as absurd. Even doing it once "for the experience" doesn't interest me. To each their own, I suppose.
That said, I did use this Friday to stock up on something I needed: rest and relaxation. There was more football and basketball to be watched on TV after a day spent also doing much of the same. There were cards to be played with my family. There were naps to be taken.
Shoppers, you have it your way, and I'll have it my way.
