November 27th – Sales

Yesterday was Black Friday, the annual day for consumer sales in the USA, and to a lesser degree in Canada.      Although I am not a shopper, I thought this would be a good time to find and share a few ‘words of wisdom’ on the attractions and detractions of shopping.

“For some, shopping is an art; for others it’s a sport.”   –  Pamela Klaffke

“The quickest way to know a woman is to go shopping with her.”  –  Marcelene Cox   (One of the first things I did with Dan, twenty some years ago,  was  grocery shopping for my three teenagers and myself.  The first time, I spent two hundred and fifty dollars.   Two weeks later, I spent three hundred dollars.    Dan has been doing the bulk of our shopping ever since.  🙄)

“Ever notice there are no clocks in stores?  It’s like casinos; they don’t want you to know how much time you’ve spent dropping your quarters.”   –  Gina Barreca 

“Sometimes I get road rage just pushing a shopping cart in a supermarket.” – Unknown  (I don’t know who wrote it but I have seen the people who do it.  Just one of the reasons I avoid shopping.)

“Once again we come to the holiday season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice.”  –   Dave Barry

“Those who hate shopping, don’t know how to shop.”  – Unknown  (I used to go shopping with my grandchildren – a lot.    When Maddy was two, she knew how to shop.  I set her down at Walmart one day.  She ran the entire length of the store, pigtails flying, flapping her arms, and  “cock-a-doodle- dooing”.  🤦‍♀️

“Online shopping gives me a reason to live for another 3-5 business days.”  –  Unknown (but hilarious)

Cool Christmas display 🤗

That’s it for today!  Take care and have a great day! 💞
