I don't know what's wrong with you people willing to go out the moment it is no longer Thanksgiving day to stampede through large retail establishments to buy products manufactured in China.
After eating that much food I have no plans to do any such thing. There was that one year my little sister and I ventured out to some of the less busy stores and I embarrassed her with my stomach upset the entire trip. In the end though, digesting all that rich food proved to serve me well.
That was also the year I learned a lesson. Besides those deals at the insane hours of the day that only a very few of you are going to actually get, there is nothing worth buying on Black Friday.
Put down the Snuggie and the Pillow Pet and walk away. If you buy a cha-cha-chia pet you are a cha-cha-chump.
Fine. Your five year old wanted a Chia sheep so badly that he slipped an ad for it in your Look magazine. Tell him that Santa Claus ran out and get him a BB gun instead. He can grow moss on the stock.
Last Christmas season I challenged all my readers and other hangers on to not purchase any presents that require electricity...especially batteries...with the exception of the kind of toys they make for very happy ladies. This Christmas season I challenge you all to not buy anything that you could buy in a clearance bin in two to three years.
No Pajama Jeans.
No copies of "The Help" or "Like Water for Elephants" in any format.
No tins of stale popcorn.
No foot baths or battery powered exfoliators or men's manicure kits or emergency car kits or appliances that only cook one type of food.
NO STINKIN' CHRISTMAS THEMED APPAREL!! Not even Grinch boxer shorts. Your husband will not think those are cute as you think they are and you know it.
I'm getting my husband a Kindle Fire. Shuddup.
