It’s about that time, isn’t it?
Yup, I believe it is.
After Halloween on Saturday, the annual onslaught begins. And over on Facebook, the annual argument over whether you should say “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” has already started. Two more months of this?? groan
Really, people? Is there nothing more important to dicker about? If you send food over the holidays to people in war-torn territories, do you think they’re going to turn it down, or be ungracious about it, if you accompany your offering with the incorrect greeting? If someone is depressed and despondent because they’re missing a loved one over the holidays, and their friends extend some cheer, do you really think they’ll give a flying fuck about the verbiage? Over on FetLife, a very sweet soul has started a collection for a young woman, stricken with cancer, to help out with her three young children as well as medical bills. I can guaran-damn-tee she will gratefully accept any kindness, even if the donor accompanies it with a PC or non-PC holiday wish.
Come on. WHO GIVES A SHIT!
Damn. I’d better pace myself. As mentioned, I do have two more months of this. Steve had better be around for a lot of stress release, I’m just sayin’.
Truth be told, I’m really not feeling all that cranky. Work is busy again. One of John’s health issues seems to be stabilizing on its own, and he may not need a surgery for it. And hey, the clocks turn back an hour this weekend, so it will get dark at 5:00 again. Yes, I know I’m insane. I love the darkness.
Now if we could just be done with this @#$%ing 80s/90s weather…
Have a great weekend/Halloween, y’all. 🙂
