First things first – just a quick follow up on the pizza guy “situation”. Now I know that some of you read the story and thought I might be exaggerating a bit about the creep level. But, I now have a witness. So earlier this week ( I think), my friend is over and we decide that we want one of those brownie/cookie masterpieces from Domino’s and I’m like ok, but you answer the door. I go online, order the cookie for delivery and watch the order tracker, patiently waiting for my warm chocolate goodness. Finally, it’s out for delivery and the tracker shows it is HIM. Door buzzes, YV goes to open the door and guy is looking around her, trying to find me, eyes real big in his head and definitely, surprised. Couldn’t have said four words and left quicker than I have ever seen. HA! I’m not making it up. CREEPY. On an unrelated note, I purchased a case of diet coke today.
I used to really enjoy going out on Black Friday and trying to score exception values. But now, they have this thing called the internet and you don’t have to leave your house. So many black Friday deals went live at 12:01 Thanksgiving morning online. Without even planning it, I was up late Wednesday night and ended up buying many things so cheap that I wasn’t planning on buying but I couldn’t stop. I got shoes, presents, oh so many presents, a sweet pair of socks to make my order big enough for free shipping and the list goes on and on. This was one of those times I wish the internet had a lock out option for a set period of time for your own safety.
I kept looking most of the day Thanksgiving and last night as I was falling asleep, I bought something else that I really needed/thought I needed at the time. When I woke up, I knew I bought things but couldn’t remember what. You’re welcome for the sales boost Yankee Candle.
But by far, the best part of Thanksgiving was my nephew. He’s 4.5 years old. We talk on the phone and before I came home, I asked him if he needed me to bring him anything. He asked for pop rocks. Well, I couldn’t find them at the one store I looked at on the way, but I found something better. Halloween candy 75% off. Guess who gave a 4-year old a huge bag with 90 packs of skittles and starbursts in it? That’s right! ME. Worth all 3 dollars and the look from my sister of disapproval when my so excited nephew went running and yelling, Mom! Look what I got!! The size of his eyes and the disbelief in his voice when I told him it was all his and he said wow, was the best ever. And who are we kidding, I left 3 hours later, a hero and isn’t that what having nieces and nephews are all about? I can hardly wait for Christmas ( insert evil laugh here)
