I can't believe we're smack dab in the middle of December. Is Christmas really only 9 days away?!? I feel like the seasons are passing me by, and I'm hanging on for dear life. Somebody just tell me where to be and what time to show up. I'll be there.
Our Christmas tree is up and decorated, but that's all. Christmas shopping? What's that? Okay, I have placed one order online, but that's all. In my defense, that small detail of not being allowed to operate a motor vehicle because of my license suspension has made it somewhat difficult to get into the full swing of Christmas shopping.
Somehow I just don't feel right about calling my mom up and asking her, Could you please drive me to the mall, so I can buy you a Christmas present? Suddenly I have memories of being 10 years old again and going to the Osco drugstore to buy her a gigantic, holiday boxed, Hershey's Kiss. I mean, there's a gift that keeps on giving.
But that nasty, old license suspension is coming to an end tomorrow (Merry Christmas to Liz!), so I will be hitting the shopping centers hard in the next 7 days. I have no idea where I'm going or what I'm buying, but by golly, I'm getting out there and mingling with all you
crazies jolly, last-minute shoppers.
