Shop 'Til You Drop

THE Season is here.
Shopping Season...
the season that separates the casual shopper from the serious/lunatic shopper.

There are many bargain shoppers who haul ass at the crack of dawn on Black Friday
(pun intended.)
These shoppers have the heart and soul for sales.

And then there are serious/lunatic shoppers who are also in it for the bargains,
but also for the sport and competition.

They are In it to Win it.

This year...the competition started earlier
with some stores opening at 9 and 10 pm on Thanksgiving.
Shoppers who hit stores on Thanksgiving have either had enough of their family...
or determined to bring home the bargain.

Shopping in these circles...aint for the faint of heart.
Between the stampedes and pepper spray ...
you have to be ready for battle.
(gives new meaning to the 'til ya drop.)


I’m not sure how anyone has the energy to leave the couch for a store on Thanksgiving.
At 9 pm I was just feeling the burn of a tryptophan induced coma couch rub.
The idea of leaving a warm, candle lit house with my family
and entering a cold brick-and-mortar store of steely eyed strangers ready to tangle,
over a tv deal...not appealing.

Besides why not wait until today... cyber Monday....
a day of online shopping deals.
The virtual mall has its advantages...
you don’t have to come face-to-face with the serious/lunatic shoppers.

I’m thinking of becoming a cyber shopper...
or invest in a suit of body armor.
Old school shopping has become way too competitive for this Kat.

I also participated in cyber Monday. Got the best deal on a food processor! I hate crowds so I avoid the stores at all cost!
