Flying elbows. Unruly behavior. Official intervention. All done on an icy environment. The Thanksgiving Night hockey game? Uh-huh. Just another round of events at the local mall the Day after Thanksgiving.
The actions of people on the Day after Thanksgiving all to secure the prized possession at a low price are amazing. As noted earlier, I don't participate in this activity and have no desire to do so. Here around the Institute, the staff was off (literally, as in not here, though they usually aren't here mentally the rest of the time, either). A perfect day to watch some football, put up the outdoor lights, catch up on some reading, and do those little things that you normally don't get to do on a regular day during the week. Shopping is best done for guys in the "Guy Christmas shopping period" occurring December 22nd and 23rd. Dicky the Peap was down at the local quarry at 4am to get a good price on a large stone so Mrs. Peap could wash his underwear, but other than that, none of our staff is cogent enough that early in the morning to make any type of buying decisions.
What a blessed time of year.
