So, yesterday, while perusing the sale papers for Black Friday, Steve spotted pre-lit Christmas trees on sale at Kohls for $69. The catch is, as all you seasoned Black Friday shoppers know, is that you had to get there when the store opened to be ensured to get one for that price.
And I'm sure you all now know what time Kohl's opened? 3am. And Steve decided he was going to do it. He was giong to be at Kohls at 3am to get us the 7ft Christmas tree. This from the man that, when the alarm goes off at 8am will roll back over and go back to sleep because it's just too early. Many evenings he's set his clock to get up and be somewhere in the morning only to shut the alarm off and decide not to go when the time actually came to get up. What can I say? The man loves his sleep!
All yesterday I kept telling him he wasn't going to go. I asked him why he would try and make himself believe he was actually going to a) get up at 2:30 b) drive in the cold and c) fight the craziness that is Black Friday for this Christmas tree. And he maintained he was going to do it. If I'd had anything to wager, I would have bet against him getting up.
So. The alarm goes off...
And do you think he succeeded? In getting our new tree for $69???
