After Christmas Sale
Forget getting up at 4 a.m. on Dec. 26th, which I’ve been known to do on occasion, like, every other year. I have experienced the impossible this year perhaps of age, and I guess so have you if you’ve been in any store whatsoever this month. Things that you would think were in high demand — wrapping paper, lights, decorations —are all available now after Christmas sale, at 60, 70% off but most stores I have been to seem pretty empty. It's really a bad economy.
It was a wonderful holiday season, despite news of the world’s financial crisis blaring from every nearby television screen or newspaper headline. It’s the day after Christmas, the family is busy cleaning up, putting away gifts, getting their homes back in order and doing fun stuff with their kids. My wife is working, thinking about my proposal that we get after some good after christmas sale items? I am basking in the post-celebration glow, pondering how my waistline got so big, wondering how long it will take me to drop the extra weight, and wondering if I’ll still fit into my jeans. Well it's a bit tighter but still fits. :)
In a week, it will be time to plan ahead, think ahead, and well, write ahead.
