For me, this tradition is only fun when we have the $$ to buy the things that are on a good deal. And, you have to save a significant amount for it to truly be worth the ungodly hours of the morning.
For my husband, brother-in-law and father-in-law, it's a different story. They have decided that this is a great "guy bonding" tradition. So, whether there is a terrific deal or not, they scour the papers looking for something to buy.
This year, Staples had a $40 bluetooth on sale for $9.99. My husband or I have never had a wireless earpiece. So, this became the item worth the insanity.
Before I go any farther, I would like to take a quick poll. How many of you know exactly what I am talking about when I say a bluetooth is on sale? There is a very good reason for this question. This became the topic of conversation last night between myself and my brother-in-law.
You see, he is a computer geek and he feels the need to make sure that I use the correct terminology when referring to these electronics. Apparantly, bluetooth is a technology, not an object. So, you cannot purchase a "bluetooth". You CAN purchase an earpiece with bluetooth technology. But, I think that takes way to long to say and I'm pretty sure every other common folk know what I am talking about when I say bluetooth.
So, I would just like to see how many of you would refer to an earpiece with bluetooth technology as a bluetooth.
Anyway, I am actually excited about this new purchase. I know I am a couple years behind, but they are very cool. I look forward to being one of those people now that you can't tell if they are crazy and talking to themselves, talking to you or... on their "bluetooth".
