Out of cat food
I had dinner with my BFF’s family and she said, “Oh, you don’t want to go to Mega Discount Store today.” I told her I had no choice, that Angel would not give me any peace despite the fact there was perfectly good dry cat food in the house.
So around 5:30 p.m. I pull into the parking lot of the superstore and was astonished at the number of cars there. I decided since I had to be at the store anyway, I might as well pick up the groceries I needed for the family dinner on Saturday. There were police officers inside and yellow caution tape everywhere.
My first thought was, “Did someone get killed? Was there an accident?”
The grocery aisles were all blocked off by this caution tape making it hard to purchase the groceries. Finally after three failed attempts I asked an employee, “How do I get to the ground beef?”
“Hmmm,” she replied as she directed me three rows down and around. I went to the dairy aisle to get eggs only to find the cases blocked by cardboard boxes full of DVD’s or video games that lines of people were apparently waiting to attack at a certain time. Shaking my head I again asked a staffer, “Can I get to the eggs?”
I realized that something was about to occur and I didn’t want to be there for it so I abandoned the quest for the rest of our Saturday dinner and headed quickly to the cat food aisle. As I navigated around a woman I said, “Excuse me, I just want to get cat food and get out of here before whatever is about to happen happens.”
The woman asked if I’d ever been there Black Friday shopping and I admitted that I had not.
