It is not within my nature to shop on black Fridays, as I am of the private boutique, trunk show type. But I am persuaded to partake in this time honored tradition, heading to the stores bleary eyed and bushy tailed at 6am.
The outlet is already bursting at the seams with people hauling loads to their cars.
"See, we are late!"
"You have to be kidding..."
A check on my phone confirms Angie from back home had stationed at Xmart at 1am, Walmart at 2am, and Target at 3am, in 30F chill no less.
