A Black Friday Poll
Yes, I know. It isn’t time for Christmas-related stuff yet. We haven’t even had a chance to survive Thanksgiving Day. That’s a whole other thing itself. There is one aspect of the Christmas season, though, that we should address before it has a chance to overcome us:
I would like to conduct a little poll to see what my readers have planned for Black Friday. Please choose one of the following:
I plan to:
(A) Hide at home, with all doors and windows locked, binge-watch episodes of “Law and Order” on TV and eat Vanilla Almond Granola directly out of the box.
(B) Do all my Christmas shopping in one day – online – sitting in front of my computer wearing PJs.
(C) Get to Target, Kmart or Walmart before anyone else, defend my place in line with a baseball bat and a shotgun and bring someone with me who has sharp elbows and good shoving skills. If possible, bring my scariest-looking relatives with me, male and female, including kids.
(D) Refuse to think about Christmas shopping until Christmas Eve, then run around like a junkie on Speed trying to buy everything at once. This is like Black Friday, except there won’t be as many bargains and a lot of people will be too tired to fight, anyway.
(E) Refuse to think about Christmas shopping until Christmas Eve, then go online and send everyone gift cards. This is the last resort of the lazy and of people who hate to go outside to shop.
(F) Other (you don’t have to elaborate, unless you have a really juicy idea).
