‘Tis the season

I love Christmas and always have, but I can do without the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping. I prefer holiday shipping. Technology is great. To be able to do all my shopping from the comfort of my office throughout the year is very much like the jelly of the month club because it’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year. Additionally, I can do all my shopping while being improperly clothed. It’s just too easy.
Speaking of being improperly clothed, I did have to take a quick trip to our nation’s largest retailer the other day. I had no choice. I needed an iPhone charger quickly and at a decent price, so I made the decision to walk through those doors. I’d be in and out in no time – or so I thought.
I found the charger with relative ease, but as I made my way back to the checkout, I saw something that I thought Emily, my 7-year-old step-daughter, would like. So I called Lucy, my wife, who told me to stay there, because she was on her way. I waited for what seemed like an eternity, or perhaps it was only seven minutes. Shopping at Walmart is like shopping in dog minutes – one minute equals seven.

I don’t know what happened, but Sunday morning my wife transformed into Betty Crocker.
