    Ah, fortunately for me I will be spending Friday morning shooting an IDPA match (our so-called "Frozen Turkey" match :) ) and, better yet, my g/f is tagging along with me because she wants to see what a match is like! *Much* better than me following her shopping...

    I'm a plumber. I'll be unclogging disposals full of discarded leftovers.

    I went to buy some camouflage pants, but I couldn't find any.

    Well, I'm off. My silly wife wanted me to wake her up around 5 am'ish.......she rolled outta bed just moments ago because I told her this would be her third and final wake-up attempt.......I was gonna crawl back in. That got her up (darn it).

    The fact that she sees you and your "buddy" as her protecters is a good thing. She also wants you to do it because it makes her feel important that you care about her. It's a woman thing and don't worry about the logic just accept that it is good and a positive that your lady feels good about your CCW and your abilities.

    by the way why do you guys call it "black friday"?

    ... subject yourself to, you mean. It need not be voluntary. It's that easy to avoid. Just don't go. Do shopping earlier and elsewhere.

    It refers to the two colors used in accounting. The retail sales are of such a volume that storekeepers who were "in the red" (in debt) can now begin to make a profit and be "in the black."

    I thought it was because after fighting the crowds you come home bnlack (and blue).

    Oh I had to go to staples but waited until almost "sale quiting time" and took the wife to WM but waited until 3 or 4 and had no probelms. She on the other hand went to WM and got some killer deals.

    You are very right....I whine about it like a little kid but I accept it and I love her (and even like her)

    Your right too. I exercise my ability to say 'no' every great once and awhile.......but I didn't this time. It all turned out good.
