Black Tuesday

Today was the day. High fashion became affordable. The average woman could now own a piece of the Missoni line.... but not in Atlanta!

Recap of my morning:

I planned out my day based on Target's highly anticipated arrival. I decided to take my lunch and go to the nearest Target. Well yesterday something told me that I should go this morning... call it intuition, call it freaky.

So that is what I did. I got all dressed for work and hightailed it over to my neighborhood Tar-gey. I strolled in at 8:11 (to avoid looking like an uber freak before the workers even arrived), and I stopped in mid-step.


Purses wiped clean, dresses disappeared.... I didn't have the heart to go to the housewares. To top it off, I almost witnessed a Black Friday-esque fight when this crazy lady comes running down the aisle with her buggy piled high with those infamous zig-zags. Women were stalking her, following her around, telling her to get rid of her stash. It was unbelievable.

The sad thing is that eBay is now loaded with this stuff and I bet one of the culprits was the nutcase in aisle three.

Semi fairy tale ending: After the Target website revived itself from mass overload, I finally got a black dress. And my sweet momma picked me up a bag for my work stuff. Yippee!


P.S. - Guys: Imagine the rush if Walmart gave out free beer and flat screens. This is the female version with a more cat-like approach -
