A Christmas Question

I like Christmastime!

No, actually, I really do. I don’t really like decorating Christmas trees, because I don’t have much of an eye for it, but I like most of the other things that come with Christmas. I even like Christmas movies, which are mostly really hokey and cheesy.

But there’s one thing I can’t stand about Christmas.

Why is it that from November 1st on, the first question anyone seems to ask you (even before the most insincere greeting of all – “How’s it goin’?”) is “Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?”

First, why do you care? Are you pumping me for info to make sure I got YOU something?

Why do you care if I’m stuck shopping on December 24th an hour before the mall closes with all the other desperate, pathetic people? If anything, you should just enjoy the comedy of it all and laugh at me as I try to fight mobs of grumpy people.

The next person to ask me gets kicked in the testicles, or more likely given my bad aim, the inner thigh area.

And for the record, I have yet to do ANY Christmas shopping.

And I’m proud of it!

So there!
