When you realize it’s black Friday
You are at home doing homework and your pencil snaps so you go to sharpen it but your electric sharpener is broken and the next day is BLACK FRIDAY!!!!waiting and watching the commercials and for once excited for the violence to start.Checking the clock every 5 minutes and you purposely get there a day early so you don’t miss a chance to fill your garage with products you won’t even use, but why not miss the chance of super cheap items.At Costco in the dark by the door with lots of people in line behind you just trying to get a flat inch TV for half the price .BOOM!!!! You check your watch and it’s 7:00 the time that costco opens and you are soooo close you can almost feel it and later when you are so close to a new samsung printer, but the women next to you rolls over your foot with a shopping cart and you drop to the floor.You see a light and you realize it’s the end but you gain enough courage to get back up and grab the last TV.Then you go get the bag of tomatoes and then get a new pair of socks,water bottles and a new bed frame,but the time you get to the cash you pay the $50 but the cashier does not give you you change .Your are trying to rush out of there because you promised yourself to get to sephora by 8:00.Finally you say KEEP THE CHANGE so you get to sephora and go home.Your sitting on the couch just before bed and you can’t stop obsessing over the new bed sheets you got for $5.You know your gonna have to wait another 365 days till next black Friday but it’s worth it.
