Anyone go shopping today?
I was walking through the counters of a national concern
And a cash machine was spitting by my shoulder
And I saw the multitude of faces, honest, rich and clean
As the merchandise exchanged and money roared
Every year my husband and I would go at the crack of dawn, sometimes before light, and wait for the stores to open, just to save a few bucks. (There must be something wrong with me because I actually like to hang out in crowds, although I detest lines. Does that make sense)
This year, with no job, and no husband, I decided to pass on the early morning Black Friday Sales. I don't know what I'm going to do about Christmas. I will probably buy some gifts for my family, but I am definitely going to keep the spending down from other years.
What about you?
