Black Friday - The Tale of LappyTop.

Let me tell you the tale of my first computer LappyTop, and how I came to have her and how this changed many things.
It came to my attention that in the near future there was to be a sale at the local WallyWorld starting at 4AM. There were computers on sale, way cheap. Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.

I do not ever recall needing anything at the store bad enough that I got up at 1AM and drove 30 miles of bad road to purchase it. That changed. I took a chair and a blanket like my wise son advised. I got there at 2AM and there were already several cars and a few people standing there in line. There was a nice lady standing just ahead of me and she was saying that she came here every year for this sale and that we needed to stay aware of the movements of others because when the doors opened some people would not remain courteous.

There would possibly be a stampede with people trodding upon anyone slow or unwary.
Pushing and shoving were to be expected.

After we had talked and visited a couple of hours, I inquired if many people were in line behind me.{she had turned around so that we could better converse.} She smiled and said maybe I should get up out of my chair and see for myself. This is when I got the oh-no's. There were people lined up behind me all the way to Starbucks a block away. 500 maybe 1000 people behind me. I was 5th in line. Baby I almost swallowed my gum.

Remain calm.
Tune in to the thought waves of those in close proximity.
Cortex X Cortex Hook up. User level Blue.
Armed with their thoughts I became alarmed. If the information that I had was correct, there were exactly 16 of the desires of my heart available inside that store after 6 were already purchased by employees. There were many standing behind me who also were there to get what I sought, my FIRST computer.

I whipped out my cellie and called inside. "Where are they located-EXACTLY where? Ah I see." Cashiers desk. Stacked neatly. Electronics Dept. "I am in line outside thank you for your help". Doors soon to be unlocked I form my plan.

Be swift
Be sure

Take my own path.{always}


Manager with key in lock. Surging humanity, shoving OH NO YOU DON'T! The crowd looks like a horse race as they all swerve towards electronics. Direct route, they follow the obvious aisle.

From the door squirrel forges straight into menswear and dives a hard right sprinting past women's lingerie. Dashing past the big girl panties hooboy she can see electronics! She circles like the translucent scavenger she is and pounces on one of the last computers available!

Holding the coveted box close to my heart. I was turning to leave with my prize, and a male voice asks "Where did you find that computer?". Turning my head for an instant to indicate where they were, they were gone. All of them. A person behind shoved the male voice, he was a big boy tackled unaware. He was propelled forward hitting me. Airborne was I and I hit the floor. My brothers my sisters when I got up, I still had my LappyTop box!

Another time I will tell you how my life was changed when LappyTop came to me.

I go out on black Friday every year, hoping to see an angry mob of people like orcs at the gates of Mordor, but its just never happened. Year over year it's nothing but civility and a larger than average crowd behaving completely reasonably. I rarely even buy anything because the discounts aren't particularly special on the few things that I would even want. It's gotten a little disheartening, and just keeps further cementing how much I prefer getting things online.

I do need a new laptop, but I didn't see anything special this year.

I miss my first laptop. I only used to to play Snood and to IM randos, but it never failed me.

Liked it. Also realised that the writer is female. Not that it matters one way or the other, but such confusion on my part has contributed greatly to a history of personal vacillation, leaving me unsure where I should raise the colours.

You're just a genuinely good person. Like, all the way to the core.

This disgusts me. :)
