So here we are...wanting to do another blog so soon to the intro blog, and as it becomes 2am and while I watch Mrs. Doubtfire, I'm beginning to think about this little Thanksgiving break that I'm taking away from NYC and comedy. At the start of this break, I caught up with old friends and even got shot down...yet again. But that's another topic for another blog (that may in fact come in 2 more hours, who knows)...ANYWAYS, I began to think about the dreaded Black Friday and how Uniontown-ers will be gearing up to stand outside of Wal Mart for HD TVs, GPS's, and any other product with initials...and lets just assume that at some point on Friday, we are going to hear about someone (or a few people) being killed while trying to get into Toys R Us for the last Light Bright. So lets take a moment for the fallen on Black Friday....
But guess what?? People go out year after year to find a deal on a TV KNOWING the risk of being trampled to death by shopaholics...you know what they say, you hear about bad things happening to people all the time but you never think that it will happen to YOU, until it hits close to home.
So why not just have murder legal on Black Friday? I mean, before you say "Adam, you're sick" (which you very well may have said already) hear me out...people enter UFC, bullfight, and sky dive knowing that there is the small risk of not making it out alive. Now granted, none of the deaths on Black Friday are intentional (as far as we know) but c'mon, I not only think that murder should be legal on Black Friday but I think that it could be considered an extreme sport. Think about it. It only happens once a year, so many people camp out and sleep in parking lots waiting for the event, AND when it comes down to it, people do what they gotta do to win. You gotta be in it to win it on Black Friday!
With that being said, this is rambling, and I wish you good luck and a safe return if you head out on Black Friday.
