A Merry Christmas to All
(Here's My Xmas List)
In keeping with the Holiday Spirit, I thought I'd send out a short Blast, listing what I'd like for Christmas. I won't rail about how I think it's awful the way we deceive children with that whole fat guy down the chimney thing, or complain (again) about how too many folks are focused on the receiving rather than giving aspect of the holiday. And I won't remark (again) about how people get worked up into a frothing frenzy as we get closer to Monday, filling the Wal-Mart parking lot and acting anything but full of cheer when it gets to finding a parking space.
Nope. I'm going to keep it light and post my list without going into detailed explanations, hoping the items are self-evident and, more importantly, provide a laugh and a moment of "cheer" to your holiday madness.
My Xmas List
#1. The U.S. gov’t. trades Alabama for Puerto Rico as its 50th State. (No explanation necessary)
#2. Donald Trump contracts alopecia. (Thereby looking even more like Dr. Evil!)
#3. Ivanka Trump reveals “childhoold touching” by Daddy. (“He said it was just a ‘tickling’ game.”)
#4. People in Connecticut stop backing into parking spaces! (Is everyone driving a “getaway” car?)
#5. EVERYONE returns his/her grocery cart to its proper place!
#6. The Republican Congress wakes up on December 25th and finds their consciences under the tree.
#7. The Democratic Congress wakes up on December 25th and finds a coherent agenda and a backbone under the tree.
#8. The Yankees get a great young starting pitcher.
#9. Daniel Day-Lewis does not leave us with Perfect Thread.
#10. All my friends (and Blast readers) have a great 2018, despite the circumstances.
And to all, a good night! See you in 2018!
