Good morning, earthlings! I slept late this quiet Saturday morning, up at 6.40 after a long day on #BlackFriday
avoiding all the frenzied buying. I went into a total of two commercial establishments, both of them eateries.
The Wikipedia article on BF is way out of date for Brazil, BF signs are all over the place. A friend said that much of it is hype, so it's also called Black Fraude (fraud). Some stores just leave the price as is, and put a sticker on a R$100 product saying it *was* R$180.
Oh, yes, they use the English phrase here. Makes it more cool. The word SALE and OFF (as in 50% OFF) has been used as well rather frequently. Of course, they are lots shorter than PROMOÇÃO, which'll take up most of your window space.
Today, we're going to have a five o'clock #tea
for a few friends in our neighborhood. The Missus is making a chicken paté, and we're buying a palm-heart pie from the TortaStore. Come join us!
Time to do a bit of work. Make it a great day today. I plan to.
