This year I had the perfect Christmas. I was sick and slept through the entire day.
I sometimes worry there’s something just basically wrong with me that I have such an aversive response to “the most wonderful time of the year.”
But you guys make me feel so much better. How reassuring to be in such good company!
I thought Todd Sentell had tapped my phone or something… but apparently he was speaking for many of us with his winning caption:
Thank you, Todd – I love it! We love it.
and that’s some mighty stiff competition! Well done, both of you!
so I left the choice to you. You loved them both… but a few more of you loved Barbara’s. It’s so empowering to realize that you and you alone have control over how much unnecessary stuff you can accumulate.
Possibly the thing I hate most about Christmas is Christmas music. I stay out of stores and out of earshot of radios from mid-November until January. Which is why I love Gil Morrison’s take on caroling:
Don’t you wish everyone would lose count?
But… it’s a new year, and it’s safe to go out in public for ten blessed months.
Happy New Year, everyone! And thank you for making me smile.
