Black Indeed

November 22, 2010

Dear Kohls, Target, Macy’s, Old Navy, Best Buy, Toys-Я-Us and any other major corporation open early on Thanksgiving:

Thank-you for the recent flyers I received in the mail.   Although you might offer some super sales on specific products (if I arrive at your doors during the wee hours), I regret to inform you I will not be there.  I have a previous engagement.  One that involves a snuggly blanket and a leisurely breakfast (complete with steaming coffee).  It’s not completely because I think you’re wrecking your employees’ Thanksgiving holiday by opening your doors at 3a.m. (although you are for many of them). It’s not totally because I think the holiday commercialism reflects America’s excess (because it does).   It’s more because I think it’s absurd (yes, I am aware I am defying a major gender role with this statement). The title you gave the day after Thanksgiving is enough to deter me.  You do not meet my needs at this time.

Sincerely,

Pamela
