Confessions of a Non-Shopper



   I’ll confess:  I went Black Friday shopping once, many, many years ago, and I can’t say I have any desire to ever do it again.

  And, though I will almost surely do the vast majority of my shopping online, the only thing I purchased today was a pair of exercise pants for myself.  (Don’t judge; these things are expensive, and they were 40% off!)

  I think maybe it’s another of those sneaky little signs of growing old, that I no longer have any sense of fun and excitement when it comes to the actual execution of the holiday shopping.  I just want to find nice gifts, and do it without a bunch hassles—no crowds, no slow page loads.  That might make me something of an old grouch, but I think maybe I can live with that.
