    that we participated in Black Friday. The kiddo really wanted a Wii, and my mom had requested a television. And my mom needed a television if she was going to watch one at all. I'd given her the previous one, which was nearing 20 years old.

    But I sure as hell wouldn't have had anyone wait in line for days. Husband just got up really early. But seriously, camping out for an XBox? That's never going to happen.

      It's one thing to get up early and brave the crowds. I'd never do that, first because I hate crowds, and second, because I buy gifts like that on birthdays when I can shop at leisure. I've curtailed a lot of gift-exchanging at Christmas.

      When people are literally dying as stores open to flood with crazed customers, that's a situation that's too insane and too dangerous. No gadget is worth that.
