We watch TV now and then, I admit to it.
I specifically always enjoy watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from New York.
They were running a lot of commercials from stores about Black Friday.
Black Friday, why it's called that is probably because it is a solemn time for mourning, because shoppers NOB make fools of themselves to the rest of the world.
They camp out in front of the stores waiting for the store to open at 3AM like the Ad that I copied off the net shows.
So you can by a toaster or 300 count bed sheets for someone's Christmas present?
The rest of the world has to laugh at the mentality of this.
I know I do.
Can you imaging Sr Mendosa opening up his appliance store on the Libramiento in order to sell you that living room coffee table or toaster oven?
I don't think so.
Lots of other commercials I saw today were opening up at 5AM
Some waited until 6.
I know, I will get up at my usual time of about 7am , go to the bathroom, make a cup of coffee and then read the news on the computer of how many American Shoppers got trampled down at the opening for the after Thanksgiving sales.......
I hope it is worth it.................
I hope you had a good Thanksgiving Dinner.
I did, and I am not shopping tomorrow, or Saturday or Sunday.............
But 3AM, really?

PS: I was discussing with La Senora how nice it was that Saturdays were made to conduct business that you were unable to do during the week, i.e. shopping, run to the hardware store, etc....
And Sundays everything was closed. Everything I mean everything, if you didn't get your milk or potatoes on Saturday you went without, and somehow, everyone accepted and managed just fine.
Then it started...........Thursday nights they were open until 9.
It is nice to see lots of closed stores in Mexico. Kind of resets everything back to normal.
