I went to Wal-Mart this morning to get black socks. The black socks weren't a Christmas present for anyone. I just needed them to wear with slacks. I went at 8 am thinking I'd beat the crowd. I also figured, and this is the really dumb part, no one would be shopping at Wal-Mart on Black Friday. Because it's Wal-Mart. What do they have on Black Friday that's so special you can't get it any other day of the week when there's no crowd?
I probably think this because we live 3 minutes from a Wal-Mart. I also probably think this because unless there's milk involved in my purchase I'd rather buy it online than fight a crowd. I didn't even get out of my car when I discovered the magnitude of my mistake. I also didn't learn my lesson. Because then I cruised right over to Old Navy and did the exact same thing. And then I wised up and went home to shop online during nap time. Online shopping rules.
