Cindy: Few Fess up to Black Friday

Hard as it is to believe, this column wasn’t the first thing some of you looked for in today’s paper.

Instead, many of you lugged your super-sized Spokesman-Review into your home and began poring over the copious advertisements. While the heady aroma of roasting turkey filled the air, you began making your lists and checking them twice. With the diligence of military generals you mapped out your Black Friday shopping strategies.

I don’t get it.

But then again, much to the bewilderment of my mother, I was born without the shopping gene. I shop only when I need something.

I just gather up an armload of pants in my size and try them on till I find a pair I like. Then I go home. Simple. Read more. Cindy Hval, SR
