Black Friday

I've made it pretty clear that I truly dislike shopping.  I get claustrophic and hungry and clammy all at the same time.  People are often rude and invade my personal space and I quickly freak out and have to leave the mall, or find a bench to rest on.  But then I start freaking out about the number of germs I'm breathing in from all the people walking by me.  Basically, I'm a disaster in malls.

In open malls, like at outlets, I do much better.  If I feel claustrophic, I step outside and get fresh air.  And being out in the fresh air in between stores helps refresh me a bit.

All of this leads me to say that going shopping at stores on Black Friday is pretty much out of the question.  So instead - I do most of my shopping online. 

And my big purchase today - Hanky Panky underwear.  Wow - I really wish I could've splurged on something a little more exciting, but what can I say, I love me some Hanky Panky's.  And it cost me a total of $0 because I had a store credit (from the store messing up a previous order - they gave me a big credit).  I'm pretty pleased with me one and only purchase!

Now, we're off to get some thai food!  Happy Friday!

  1. I have never been shopping on Black Friday either. Last year I spent Thanksgiving in Mexico with my family and we saw the mobs at Wal-Mart on t.v. Later that day we asked my 8 year sister if she wanted to go shopping around town in Mazatlan. She replied, "No, I don't want to get pushed." Haha!


Leave me your thoughts!
