One reason I don’t care for gift-giving holidays is that most people feel obligated to buy, give and keep worthless crap. Hey, I feel guilty giving (or throwing) my gifts away too! But lately I’ve realized my feelings of relief top my feelings of guilt when I get rid of things I don’t need.
“Oh, so our gifts aren’t good enough for you, you ungrateful bastard?”
Pretty much. Seeing people doing something meaningful with their time and money would be an awesome gift for me, though.
12/20-I just had to quote my mom from breakfast this morning:
“Wow, look at the waves out there! I think there are surfers out there! Or maybe it’s just spots on the window.”
OMG. Maybe it’s just me, but that’s spit-take-worthy.
12/21-My parents… True Democrats to the core. Even getting ready to host a party, and they still talk and talk and talk about doing stuff and getting ready, and never do it! Four hours until the party, and they aren’t even here. Give me a break. I bet if I told them their son was a Republican they’d have simultaneous heat(sic) attacks. For the record, I don’t approve of any political party enough to claim it. Guess I’ll have to start my own.
