Happy Holidays! It's hard to forget about the commercial nature of the holidays, especially when you're in the mall trying to avoid an elbow to the face (unintentional, of course...it's just that you're short, and the store is the sardine tin you are trapped in with the city's entire population) and wondering why you're putting yourself through shopping hell.
But just remember, the holidays are not about shopping (yes, this is coming from someone in retail), it's about giving. And family and friends. And being nice to everyone. And next year, embrace online shopping.
Dear Supermarket Bagperson: I don't know if you know this, but you do not win a prize if you can fit 100% of my groceries into one bag. Especially when I have provided you with two bags. Extra especially when piling everything into one bag results in a load so heavy that it makes me wish I had a back brace with me. It's not a contest, okay?
