Black Friday

Today is the traditional day, here in the United States, for giving thanks for stuff we have. It’s also a day where we gear up for some crazy sales that most stores have on the day after, now known as ‘Black Friday’.

If you’re willing to get up hours and hours before dawn, stand in line in the cold, damp air, and brave huge crowds of people, you might be lucky enough to grab one or two of the things that you saw in the ad that brought you to the store in the first place.

Then, since there are hundreds of people in the store, all trying to buy limited quantities of the same thing, you get to stand in line, possibly for hours, to pay for your thing. Then you go to the next store and do it all again.

Doesn’t that sound like fun?
