What Was I Thinking?!?!?!

I have NOT gone shopping on Black Friday for at least 12 years. For some unknown reason, when I woke up this morning, I felt the need to buy the crockpot I had seen in one of the multitude of flyers next to (not in because there were too many) our newspaper. It was a great deal and I have been wanting a larger one to make the many delicious recipes on the SP site. Then I had a total brain failure!!!!! I asked my husband to come along. He has NEVER gone shopping on Black Friday (for very good reason). All the way to the store, I reasoned that it was only one stop and we would be fine. The minute I stepped into the doorway of the store, I knew it was a big mistake. Have you ever noticed that many women grow horns on Black Friday? As I entered the store, 2 women bumped into each other (it was quite crowded) and one actually screamed "Ouch" and began a tirade that I can't print in this venue. I waded to the back of the store, found my Crockpot, and looked for Ken (who was parking the car). I saw him coming down the aisle and couldn't stop laughing.........he was as white as a sheet and his eyes were wild!!! He proceeded to tell me about 2 women in the front of the store who were screaming at each other and that store security was trying to pull them apart. Then he said that the few men who were with their wives all had robotic glazed-eye looks (like Stepford_Husbands???). We left as soon as we could and headed for a "Man-Store". I didn't go in!!! What Was I Thinking??? I WASN'T!!!!!
