Are you kidding? The ONE day of the year no one in the family wants to go to the store with you; your husband (ex) will gladly stay home and watch the kids.....they know you will be gone all day and they won't call you 50 times to say "When are you coming home?"; shopping early with only the HARDCORE shoppers that know to GET OUT OF THE WAY once they have finished feeding on the kill; no one cares what you look like, no one makes small talk (except in line BEFORE the store opens - after that, its dog-eat-dog); no one brings their children (unless they want to be reported to DSS for abuse)....geez, I'd go every year even if I don't want to buy anything!
Summed it up perfectly!!! I couldn't have said it better myself!! Except for sighting all the wonderful deals to be had!! I'm gonna be at Circuit City at 3:30 for the 32" tv for $199, the laptop for $199, the DVD player (for SIL) for $19, the MP3 player for $47.99 that I'm gonna PM to BB for $37.99, and all the good CD and DVD deals!!
