Well, since it’s the day after Thanksgiving there are no more “Thanksgiving Trimmings” posts to be done. The Turkey’s been picked clean, the pies are half finished, and the leftovers have been bagged up for the next few days’ grubbin’. This is Black Friday, where the horror stories of last night’s shopping madness trickle out through Youtube and the media.
Have any war stories yourself? From pepper spray to sheer chaos, Americans sure know how to shop. The way that people act in the wee hours of Black Friday shopping reminds one of the madness that occurs in The Day After Tomorrow or the NBC show “Revolution.” Its funny how “Can’t we all just get along?” becomes “can’t ya just get out of my way?” when tension rises.
Well, ya know what, pardna? Sometimes people need to just get out of the city and visit a slower way of life – like West Texas. It ain’t perfect, but people know that fightin’ over deals doesn’t make a lick of difference if you hurt someone along the way. If the whole purpose of gettin’ that deal is to show your love to someone, then you twist it all up by gettin’ angry at your neighbor in line for that gift.
Well if you missed out on those Friday deals last night, remember that Black Friday blowouts have only just begun. Ever heard of Black Monday? Well, its a second chance! Many online retailers will offer sales the Monday after Thanksgiving.
Also, Christmas season lasts until Dec. 25, after all! It is a season of giving, not a season of taking. Don’t let Black Friday blacken the mood of Christmas. Also, as always, the season of giving means a season of Texas Treats!
