Damn was I wrong. WHAT A ZOO!
And people, I don't know how much clearer I can say this...if you're going to be rude, take it somewhere else. We all know things are stressful this time of year, I don't need your attitude on top of it. Have a laugh. Enjoy that you're buying things to make kids happy. Except you...yes you, with the OVERFLOWING shopping cart. Even if you had 10 kids that is a ludicrous amount of crap to be buying (I can say this, I know someone with 12 kids, and she doesn't buy that much crap for them).
Man, people are narky this time of year. I need to remember to smile, not let them dump their crappy attitude on me, and enjoy the fact that we'll see family and friends we care about and can cuddle kids and watch bad movies on tv while eating popcorn and drinking hot chocolate. And maybe....just maybe if we wish hard enough....it'll snow.
Oh, I got all my stuff on the list and the guy at the till looked at me crazy when I said "Happy Christmas!" to him...then he smiled and said it back. I think people have forgotten to say it enough :-).
