A humorous short story

          Three in the morning comes quickly when you stayed up until eleven the night before. I could barely keep my eyes open as I struggled to walk to the bathroom. Yes, I was tired, but excited to get to the Walmart, and be one of the first in line. It was Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday. The best shopping day of the year, and there were deals to be had.
         I knew that my mom was probably already awake, and getting ready downstairs, so I hurried to also be ready. I threw on my only pair of clean jeans, a t-shirt, sweater, and a pair of socks. Then I hurried down the stairs to meet my mom and two sisters. My dad rarely went to Black Friday, so I didn't bother to wake him.
         It was going to be a glorious day. I had been saving up for this all year and I had five hundred seventy-five dollars in my bank to spend on a decent laptop, which I desperately needed for school and my own personal hobbies. I had always wanted to be a writer and also be able to play video games. I cuttently had no option to do either.
