I know I said earlier today that I love Christmas, and I do. Up to a point.
But right now I am all Jingle Belled the fuck out.
Sure it was fun at first. Visiting the family, opening the presents, bringing up embarrassing stories about my brother's past just to humiliate him.
But now I'm over it.
For one thing I had to drive all the way out to Palmer, where my mother and brother now live, which meant no holiday beverages. (Uncle Gryphen cannot afford a DUI on his spotless record.)
I'm not saying that drinking alcohol makes every thing better, because everybody already knows that drinking alcohol makes everything better. (Except child rearing of course, not that my father did not give it the old college try.)
Anyhow before I go all Grinch that stole Christmas and harsh everybody's mellow, let me just say that I had a lot of fun today. (You know as much fun as you can have without a drop of alcohol and your brother telling everybody that story about how you used to sing out loud to Bee Gees songs. By the way Too Much Heaven is a classic!)
I got a lot of nice gifts, gave more expensive ones to others so that I looked cool, and enjoyed my visit with my family.
Now I am back home contemplating the upcoming year.
And while I have literally no idea what is in store, I know that it will undoubtedly be a wild ride and I could not imagine a better group of people to share that experience with than all of you.
Happy Holidays! (That's right Fox News I said "Happy Holidays," bite me!)
