to come up with warm, fuzzy or even amusing things to talk about since most of you are in a holly, jolly state of mind. At least those of you who aren't hassled and frazzled by trying to be all holly jolly.
Since I have no warm and fuzzy holiday memories I don't really participate in these annual events for which I have no sympathy, empathy or at this point in my life, understanding.
I'm all for a little fun but please don't put a gun to my head and tell me I have to be all happy-happy. I don't mean to rain on your parade but please stop trying to make me march in it.
Same goes for for New Years - my New Year is the day after the Labor Day holiday. That's when school would start up and that's my annual beginning.
I'm not a scrooge, I'm not a party pooper, I do not subscribe to any organized religion. I will admire all your decorative efforts - to a point - I'll even sing a song or two 'cause let's face it the music rocks - but I will not have a calendar dictate my generosity, my concern for others or my desire to have a little silly fun.
