In Canada, the day after Christmas is boxing day (now boxing week); a time to fight traffic and other people to save a few dollars for things you don’t really need or want, but you’ll just save so much money!
In the United States, the day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday. A day when people actually get shot, stabbed and punched in the face to save a few dollars for things they don’t really need or want, but they’re saving so much money!
After the chaos of Black Friday comes Cyber Monday – a day for geeks to get their gear and gadgets at discount prices. We need to make a slight change to the deal though: Cyborg Monday. Cochlear, Caroline’s chosen manufacturer/processor actually have a Cyber Monday sale. Cyborgs get a Cyber Monday sale.
The only downside: we have to wait until next year to take part in the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale – you can’t buy in the store until you have your implant serial number. Caroline won’t have that until activation day.
So this year Black Friday will have to wait, but Christmas is still an implant, so there’s that.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends!
