It NEVER Stops!


On the phone today a friend informs me that Macy's is having a sale.

"Macy's? Macy's always has a sale! Things are priced at "full price" there for about two hours and then the dive down to break even begins."

"Ah, but this was a special sale. A sale for gifts."

"Gifts? What about gifts? Who you getting gifts for?"

"Everybody. Don't you know that gifting time has begun?"

"Begun? When? I just noticed that daylight savings time has begun. Don't we get to enjoy the savings before the givings?"

"Not any more."

"God! It NEVER stops!

"Last week, save the effing Republic!

"This week save an hour of daylight!

"In a couple of weeks cook everyone a gigantic meal!

"Then go out and blow about a grand on gifts and get back $200 in gifts! Plus a lot of torn paper with pictures of dwarfs, horned beasts, and an old bearded man hitting on a hash pipe!"

"So, what do you want?"

"What I want is to cut straight to January 1, 2011 so I can get the hangover done with. God! It NEVER stops!"

Calm down dude. After the gigantic meal, you will sleep.

But that's when the resolutions start. You really wanna go there?
