Five Minutes of Fame: The Ghost of Christmas Trash

People come into our lives and leave just as quickly as they came.  Most folks, who have no better explanation, say that those people are welcomed into our space for a reason.  It could be to teach us a lesson about life; or a lesson about ourselves; or a lesson that has something to do with others.  The possibility of reasons are endless.  But let me ask you.  Why the hell do those people [who have come and gone] return AGAIN during the holidays?  I’ll tell you why.  Because they want a Christmas gift!

They think that just because this is the season of giving, you’re dumb enough to run your ass back to the mall to stand in a long line, merely to pick up an overpriced trinket for them, that will most likely cost you about $6.99 more than what you’d pay for it if you were purchasing it on a day that had absolutely nothing to do with the holiday season.  There are words for people like that: GREEDY! 

So to the greedy So-and-So’s who only call when there are gifts, money, or some other form of personal gain involved, may your Christmas stockings be stuffed with lumps of ostrich dung.  Nobody is that stupid and nobody is that pressed for your friendship.  Perhaps in the New Year, you should consider hanging around a little bit more.  Then for Christmas, you might get lucky enough to receive a gift-wrapped mirror so you can see the error of your ways.

‘Tis the season to be jolly. Not stupid. 

Quote of the week:   “The worst gift to give for Christmas is a fruitcake.  There is only one fruitcake in the entire world, and people keep sending it to each other.”
