Not doing the traditional Thanksgiving turkey thing. Nope. Today I am ordering a pizza and drinking pints of Guinness. Why waste a perfectly good day of football spending it in the kitchen (or stranded at the airport because of the weather)?
Football. Others may be binging on turkey, but I will binge-watch my day away with football. Bonus: football has no calories! No wasting my long weekend at the gym allaying my guilt of over-eating.
The guy who came up with the whole DVR concept. I record all my favorite shows so I watch them on my schedule. My favorite feature: the fast-forward button to blast past all those annoying “Black Friday Sales” that have been airing since BEFORE Halloween.
The choice to avoid “Black Friday” all together. Sorry, but offering me 20% savings is not worth my sleeping in. If you want my business, you will offer me the best deal whenever, if ever, I decide to grace my presence in your store. If you are not willing to do that then there is always Amazon.com.
Amazon.com. Thanks to them I have been able to set foot in the mall a LOT less often. Bonus: not having to navigate swarms of Abercrombie & Fitch clad, hyper-texting pre-teens.
My loving wife, who gets me and allows me to get away with avoiding traditions, opting out of the Christmas shopping hype, and watching lots of football.
