For my family..it’s a typical Thanksgiving. Family, Food, and questions as to why I am still single! “Don’t You Realize You Are One More Checkbox Away From The Last Age Group??”. I want to take the wish bone and swallow it whole at this point!
But this year, my sister claimed she had a ‘plan’. At 10p.m. we would dash out of there with the hopes to get all of our Holiday shopping done. I thought to myself, leave the family and the questions behind? I put on my running shoes and took off! We headed to the mall in Freehold, NJ. My sister had a map. I am not kidding! I thought I was with Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible. She said “Why go to just one store, when you can park in one spot and hit them all”(Oh I get it now ‘THEM ALL’ = THE MALL)l! It was like a scene from “JUMANJI”, once those doors opened, EVERYONE trampled over each other like animals, and that was just to get to Orange Julius!
I survived about 2 hours and I caved in, because as the hours passed, the lines were longer to get into each store, and I just headed back home. I did find some bargains, but the stores in the mall seemed like normal everyday sales. My sister, however was a trooper and stayed till the sun came up! Although I think she just shopped for herself!!
