Black Friday: Not Necessarily The News
With the holidays fast approaching, Tootie Landry gives her take on "Black Friday" in this edition of "Not Necessarily The News."
"Hey! I’m Tootie Landry and this is what I found out today!
With the Holidays fast approaching I thought this would be a good time to talk about “Black Friday!” It seems it’s the new way to tailgate! Given the state of the economy this year, I think it should be called “Dark Gray Day!”
I really don’t understand this whole concept. I have never wanted to camp out on a curb outside a Department store, just to get an item on sale. That could easily make my body black and blue on Saturday.
Traditionally, Black Friday is the day retailers begin to see a profit for the year. It’s also the color of the sky, as most shoppers head out the door.
It’s the day adrenaline pumped soccer Mom’s need Gloria Allred on retainer! This isn’t Winter Wonderland… folks this is serious business!
And if you dare to venture out, don’t forget to bring the plastic and pack some patience.
Clearly, Black Friday isn’t for everyone. I don’t even like to ads in the newspaper that turn my fingers black. And for me…. The thought of surrounding myself with hundreds of anxious shoppers, makes me want to just stay home and remain in my Turkey Coma! And I’m Tootie Landry and this is “Not Necessarily the News!”
