Black Friday Tale
This is a story of how Black Friday can be humorous.
All through most of her life my father was on my sister about her weight. She takes after my mom and was just a little heavy. I felt really bad for her. Now the tables have turned and he is on me about my weight.
My sister had started yet another diet, bless her heart, and was doing very well on it. Especially for it being around the holidays.
Now, my sister and her good friend since childhood used to go out every Black Friday. They would go at 4:00 in the morning and wait in the long lines together. I never went, but it sounded like they had such great fun.
One year the Target store was their first stop. They waited in line in the dark, bitter cold. But the store was doing something nice for the shoppers. They had free coffee and doughnuts for the first people through the door.
My sister and her friend got in, were handed the doughnuts and coffee, and proceeded to get their buggies.
Just then, my sister found herself on TV. The local channel's news department had sent a camera crew to cover the big event.
Later in the day, everyone in the family saw the news footage.
My sister, on her diet, with a doughnut in her mouth.
I don't think my dad has ever let her forget it. We all still find it so funny. Her doughnut diet.
Now she is just as beautiful but she is thin. I am the fat one.
She is in a great relationship with a marvelous man, her fiance.
Oh, wait. I don't know if he knows this story. I have some sharing to do!
