For those who think that shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving is all about sweet deals, you may be missing the point. I think of a couple of years ago and my son and two of his friends. We were standing in line at a CompUSA at midnight in order to capture some sweet Black Friday promotional goods. Did we freeze? You betcha. Memories? Off the chart. It was a zoo and the service a joke. But the memories of being with my son during the wee hours of night is forever.
I remember the year where we also timed our visits to Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Office Max and Home Depot. The visits were to harvest the great offerings each had. I remember the Best Buy employees coming out with donuts and hot chocolate prior to their openning. Is that class or what?
Just four more days from today. Hmmm . . .that TV in the kitchen is looking pretty run down :-).
