How do you stay entertained while waiting in line?

As for caffeine, we usually start our trek at Sonic. There are a couple 24 hour Sonics that are out of the way but we go around that way to stop there. In line, we have each other, and we always end up chatting with those around us. Not as much as we used to, when we stood outside in the cold for hours. We always left those days feeling like we had new friends.

I always have a bottle of mountain dew. I don't do coffee. Mama and sister do, so we usually have to stop somewhere. And then they are trying to shop holding their coffee in one hand in Kohl's...
I also bring a breakfast bar and some pretzels or other snacks. I don't have time to spend on non-shopping activities like stopping for food!

Phone, Ads and talking to people. I am usually the guy that calls out line jumpers or people who let there family jump in line after we have stood out there for hours in the cold and they think they can just come and get my stuff. Not going to happen.

Talk to those that came with me as well as those around us. Go over ads for the next store and make game plan on who is to get what. I set the coffee to brew before we leave and we all fill up our cups and bring extra water. We usually wait and do breakfast about 11am or noon. After we've made our way through the majority of the stores and got our doorbusters.

The first year Walmart had the 3 "events", but you had to be in line before event 2 in order to get in on the sale for event 3 (God, what a PITA that was!), I remember getting a book from the shelf to read while in line. My sister was in a different line, and everyone was too cranky to make small talk. I hated that year. LOL

One of the main reasons I go, other than getting the great deals, is to talk and interact with other shoppers. I love meeting new people that way and having the BF talk and chatter. Like someone mentioned though, most people just veg out on their phones now, so it gets harder to get into those conversations.

Don't think we've waited much outside anymore in years, last year or the year before we made it to Macy's before they opened and it was a lot of talking about ad and trying to keep like ppl together to avoid the pesky kids in crowd. Brandsmart and Best Buy usually have lines to get in so we'll review ad and answer questions about whats on sale for clueless ppl who just joined the line

If I'm at Walmart or Meijer, I'm chatting with those around me in line. If we're after different things, we can often help each other with locations and/or grabbing said other items. Since I shop solo, making "friends" with those around me can be vital to getting everything on my list.
For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"
NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol
