Ok, so it’s one week until Christmas. I think if I were to cave to my mood right now, give in and throw up like I want to, all that would come out would be sparkly ribbons with a snowflake motif (cause I DID eat quite a lot of snow last week).
Acting Christmassy is one of the many ways that I pretend everything is OK so that everyone who’s so worried about me will leave me alone. Before you start worrying about me…there ARE people who I trust and who know better than to try to ‘fix’ everything for me who I can turn to when I need….I just like to keep a lot of the other ‘supporting characters’ in my life at arm’s length. They’re well-meaning people who just don’t listen….how’s that for overly simplifying the entire matter??… 😉 ok…digress…NOW…
So, in order to maintain the illusion, I dutifully participate in all of the Christmas crap as before, though for the life of me I can’t remember an actual Christmas I’ve enjoyed. I love picking out gifts for people….I love the idea of Christmas….I just happen to have one of those families that it’s a miracle haven’t been featured in one of those dark comedy movies I love so much…or on Dr. Phil… 😉
So, in the spirit of giving, I offer you one of my all-time favorite songs. It was written by the members of Toad the Wet Sprocket, but there isn’t a YouTube video of their version. So, here’s a cover by some random dude who needs to stick to the melody a little more…..just sayin’… 😉
