This year I scoured the ads and couldn’t find anything that seemed worth my while to get up at 4 am and fight the crowds in the cold, so I slept in. I don’t feel like I missed anything, as I did have to go out Friday afternoon to have my packing removed, and the traffic was still horrible. I’ll try not to go into too much detail about my teeth, but the packing was stuck and there was great tugging involved in getting it to come out. Then they were repacked! Fun.
