Last night, I decided to begin to consider decorating the tree for Christmas. I pulled out the Christmas lights and only one string worked. That wasn’t going to stop me – "I’ll go to Wal-Mart and get some lights…they’re open 24 hrs this week" I thought to myself. At 9:30pm last night, I think 90% of the population of Northern Saskatchewan was in the store. You couldn’t move without walking into someone.
Then when I’d finally had enough of that, I found the shorted checkout line…or so I thought. There was one person in front of me and I did not move a foot for at least 10 minutes. I walked out of the store, shaking. It was the first time I’d thought about "drastic measures".
If I have to go back there this week, I’m waiting until 3am.
