Oh I hear you... but I don't really believe you're telling me that it's only 8 more days till Christmas. And I certainly don't believe that there's only 7 more shopping days. Nope, just will not accept it.
I pride myself on shopping all year long. ALL YEAR LONG! But, uh, something must've happened this year. Like a couple of plays... a trip to California... couple of weddings. Even a funeral. Yeah, it's been busy lately.
I have no idea where the entire beginning of the year went. Nor the middle.
But all is not lost. I have bought two gifts so far. And I only have about three dozen left to go. Yes, I'm going to be braving the crowds in the malls this year. I'm going to be doing what I make fun of others for doing. And I'll be out and about with all the folks that I usually feel sorry for each year.
Yes, I feel sorry for me this year.
Do you suppose Santa can steer his sleigh this way? Towards my house?
No, I don't have any lights up on my house. And since that's supposed to be the thing that draws Santa to your house... well, I guess I'll have to try something different to get Santa to make a stop here. And I'm thinking it's gonna have to be something a little bit stronger than milk and cookies...
Ho Ho Ho!
