Today was a monumental, historical day.
No, not just because today in 1867 Alfred Nobel patented dynamite. Or because in 1986 Reagan revealed the secret arms deal that uncovered the whole Iran-Contra affair thing.
But because my husband, voluntarily and of his own free will, SHOPPED ON BLACK FRIDAY.
Andy uttered the phrases, “I could go with you if you want,” and “if you’re going to regret not buying the electric griddle, just go ahead and buy it.” He went to Target. AND Wal-mart. AND Kohl’s where he stood in line for half an hour.
This event will probably happen only once in our lifetimes. Perhaps it should be recorded in something more important than this blog. The Congressional Record, maybe? Lugar’s still our senator, right? Who’s got his number? Today needs to be woven into the fabric of our country’s history.
(p.s. I did buy the griddle. $9.99! GO AMERICA!)
