I survived Black Friday.
The morning started with brunch with friends, and then we proceeded to tackle our respective shopping lists. The stores were crowded and people seemed to be in a buying frenzy. Overall, though, everyone seemed fairly polite and well-mannered.
We took a break in the late afternoon and met for a little fortification - cocktails and appetizers - and then continued shopping.
I finished up everything on my list, giving me no legitimate excuse to venture out for additional holiday shopping. But, I have a couple of layovers coming up that happen to be in cities that many would consider some of the great shopping meccas of the world. Alas, I have no will power.
