Day 31: Christmas Balls
Today, on Christmas Eve, my Mother and I braved the mall to get a few last-minute items. It was pure insanity. While sitting in the food court for lunch my Mom remarked that no one around us was really smiling. As the televisions played video of people going to Bethlehem to see the city where Jesus was born, we were sitting in a mall with the apparently unhappy people of the world who were trying to purchase a few more things before their time ran out and Christmas was here. I noted that it was actually quite sad the stressful, ridiculously busy, insanely selfish thing that as a society we have turned Christmas into.
On our way to the mall my Mom asked for my help in writing the list of the things we needed. This is the result of my careful planning:
Well, here's to hoping for the husband and the diamonds, but I'll settle for just the champagne at this point!
Happy Christmas Eve to all of you (technically Christmas right now to all of my friends in Mountain Time or later)! May you all have a wonderful Christmas with your families and friends and may you get/find/buy all the things on your list that you truly hope for!
