Houston, we may have a problem. Do you remember reading the other day about daddy prepping the turkey for mommy? Well she came home from the worky place and saw it that night. She did laugh at his shall we say creativity. But, she told him that in return he would have to survive Black Friday.
I know Fridays. I live for them every week. Fridays mean that mommy will be home for the next couple of days. Fridays mean I get to stay up late and watch television with mom and dad. Fridays sometimes even mean popcorn while watching b-rated movies on the Sy-Fy channel.
But, I’ve never heard of this Black Friday. It has to be bad. I say this for a couple of reasons. First, when mommy told daddy he would have to “survive” this day, daddy stopped laughing. Heck, for a minute I thought he was going to cry. He kept saying, “But, but, but”. Mommy didn’t listen to him. Second of all, you know something is bad when mommy laughs like the wicked witch from the east. Ooh shivers just hearing that in my head.
So this Black Friday thing, what can it be? Is it dark as black outside all day and it’s a Friday this Black Friday? Is it a plague or disease? Did someone not pay the light bill? Is it the end of days? Should I start stock piling my piggy chow in my bedroom? I’ll admit that this little piggy was scared.
I did what I do best. I squealed, ran to my bedroom and slammed my door. I then immediately started doing some research on my laptop.
ODP (oh dear piggies). It’s worse than what I thought! Did you know that the day after Thanksgiving in the USA, they call it Black Friday? Here’s the scary part. People get up voluntarily at 0400 hours to camp outside of stores to go shopping!. Thud – piggy down! 0400 hours is like way before even Old McDonald gets up at the farm. It’s before the birds start chirping. It’s before they even make the doughnuts at the Krispy Kreme. Heck, it’s before *I* even stir in my toddler bed. That’s early!
Mommy is going to make daddy go shopping with her on Black Friday at 0400 hours. Two words mom. How uncivilized. I can’t believe mom is going to get up before the break of dawn. But friends, don’t feel too sorry for daddy. I saw him the garage laughing and getting “ready” for Black Friday. He was pulling out his old pads from his football days. I think I even saw him with a hockey stick and a helmet. Oohh mommy – who is punishing who now? Snorts.

I did a lovely tribute to my favorite retail holiday this morning! Hopefully it will help alleviate your fears of this terrifyingly named day! 🙂

Sigh – that was a close call. I was really thinking of horrifying things about today. Such a relief it’s not a nasty disease of some sorts. But I am sorry for you. You poor thing. XOXO – Bacon

ha ha we have started doing it now in the UK, but this household stays in bed/home LOL

Y’all need to teach mom and dad a thing or two. They got me up at 0400 hours for breakfast. I almost fell asleep eating! That is way too early for me! XOXO – Bacon

I saw the wally-world videos and how crazy people acted….for a toaster :o) Not even my momma would go to a store today. But she did it online, the whole family got a laughing fit for her “smart” shopping plan. Please be careful and wear a helmet like Hell-mut when you are on shopping tour today.
11/29/2013 at 10:42 am
That was smart for your mom. I can only imagine what my humans are going to look like upon their return. This so can not end well. XOXO – Bacon
11/29/2013 at 11:20 am
Her plan was good, but the result was a disaster :o)
11/29/2013 at 3:25 pm
That doesn’t sound good my friend. Not at all. XOXO – Bacon

Bacon, your Mom is nuts! I did Black Friday once. Once. I have no patience for waiting in line for anything. I’m more for small business Saturdays myself.
11/29/2013 at 10:43 am
This is what shocked me. Mommy *hates* shopping and she’s never done this before. She doesn’t have the patience for it. I can tell you that already. Someone will not survive this experience. XOXO – Bacon

I’m on it. I’m craving pumpkin donuts now. Mmm. Good idea. XOXO – Bacon

Well the up side of the Black Friday thing is that maybe you’ll get some extra treats or some new something ’round the house!! That could be way cool!!!

Snorts. Mom called home one time and left me a message. Hopefully they’ll be home soon. XOXO – Bacon

Bacon we started shopping Thursday evening just for a few hours. And then were went out on Friday around 9 am too. Hope your mom and dad found lots of bargins and something good for you too.

You are on early shopper 🙂 Mom and dad brought home a few bags. They wouldn’t let me look in them. I’m not sure why because they usually show me every thing. It was strange. I know they were tired too. Both of them fell asleep on the couch before I did. It was hilarious to hear the synchronizing snoring – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
