Back to the drawing board

t appears my modest proposal to skip Christmas every other year — you know, give us all a chance to miss it — has failed.

I blame too few hours and too scarce resources.

Lessons learned: Work smarter, not harder, and start earlier.

Maybe next year.

Meanwhile, Merry Christmas, if you must.

Feeling momentarily magnanimous, I might even spare you a Thursday post.

Really, it's the least I can do.

P.S. You know what merchants should do? Merchants should rewrite the lyrics of cherished Christmas carols, replacing barely effable concepts of grace and hope with cordless drills and fleece hoodies and the incomparable joy of buying things … then saturate the airwaves with the result. That would be a novel and welcome marketing approach.
