Fell On, Black Days

Today is the 5th annual Cool Springs shoparama which marks the official kickoff for my shopping season. Every year we get up at the butt crack of dawn and make our way to said mall and shop for many, many hours. This is followed by a fantabulous meal at Macaroni Grill with the usual red wine and yummy olive oil dipped bread accoutrements. My girlfriends consider this the least we deserve after putting in such long hours on our feet and fighting crowds. I am waiting for my friend Kristie to arrive so I thought I would pass the time and make a quick entry about my mounting excitement. Well, that is it! Sorry, 5 a.m. is really too early to blog and make it even remotely interesting.

1. Wait! Wait, don't forget the 700 Wii games my child has requested this year!

2. Power shopping followed at once by buyer's remorse!

3. The trouble is I never make a specific list.

4. The mall we are shopping at is many miles away.

5. With a faint pop after the credit card was scanned; the limit had been officially met.

6. The checkout line stood before me shadowy and ominous.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to soaking my feet I am sure, tomorrow my plans include sifting through the previous day's booty and Sunday, I want to watch a little Viking's football and chill.
