Christmas shopping. I don't do Christmas shopping on the day before Christmas Eve. I have everything wrapped and ready by the day before Christmas Eve.
Except this year. When the lack of funds had me in the store playing chicken with hordes of procrastinators.
This was combat shopping. Survival shopping. Anyone who could be left off the before-Christmas list was brutally triaged out of the list. The mall was attacked with extreme prejudice.
The mall won anyway. By the time we were finished, Erin and I, both given to claustrophobia, were racewalking our way back to the car--LET ME OUT!!!!
If it's not here now, Christmas will live without it.
