An “out of bed” experience for me today. For the last year, I planned to buy a new computer for my daughter on Boxing Day to try to get a good deal. I planned to buy it online, likely at Future Shop but alas, the configuration I needed was not being offered by them as I had hoped.
Best I saw was a system for $1000 at Best Buy. Woke up at 4:15 a.m. thinking about going in on Boxing Day (horrors!) to buy the computer and couldn’t fall asleep again until 4:45. Dreamt about driving to Best Buy and buying it. Then woke up again at 5:45 and said “this is crazy. I might as well go.” Best Buy opened at 6:00. Quickly slipped something on. Drove through minimal traffic until I got near Best Buy at 6:05. Couldn’t get in the parking lot. It was jammed. Had to park a block and a half away, even though nothing else was open yet. Wall to wall people in the store. Found a person to direct me to where the package I wanted was. Found it and got lucky getting someone not at the check out lines who I could purchase it through. Carried it back through the throngs of people and back to the car. Home by 6:45 and back asleep by 6:50 without the family noticing. Woke up at 8:30 and it was like three dreams. Set it up in the afternoon.
