Christmas is starting to popup
everywhere
this year
I am not getting sucked in
I mean it
this year I am not going to spend
a
gazillion dollars
I donít have
not that I want to just
skip it
no
I love it really
but
this year
Iím giving words out
words only
thatís it
Iím going to write some short stories
for my nieces and nephews
take them to kinkos
get em all bound up like real books
sign em and wrap em
Iím going to write some really cool poems
for
everyone on my list
buy some cheap frames
sign em and wrap em
I mean it
words are good
words are forever
words may not be a tie
or tea set or remote control car
but
hey I got lots of words
I can line a few up and hand em out
do
you
think
Iíll get booed around the Christmas tree
maybe
but
thereís always the outside chance
that
the words might mean something
outside
chance
I know I know
Iím a scrooge
whatever
takes one to know one
HA

Scrooge was a perfectly rational fellow who succumbed to societal pressure after a bout of dyspepsia.
