Crowds of Christmas shopper included one black cat taken in my the “come-ons”
My virgin voyage into Christmas shopping land for 2009 was a dud. I rushed out to Wal-Mart this morning against my better judgment, but the lure of a $18 Sunbeam microwave was too much for me.
I joined the entire population of Starkville minus a few smart souls in cruising the aisles in search of the aforementioned appliance.
The best I could determine, there were no employees in the store and no one knew anything about the $18 microwave. They probably had one and it went hours before I arrived at 7 a.m. wearing a raincoat over my pajamas.
Oh well, I almost purchased a microwave for $44 but NO! I’ll not be taken in by that shameful marketing ploy. I hereby declare that I will not purchase one single item in Wal-Mart for the rest of this year. There are about 10,000 harried souls emptying their wallets at the altar of King Wallyworld. I’ll not become one of them.
Next year, I don’t know yet.
