Today I was at the dentist getting my teeth cleaned. As much as I hate the discomfort, indignity, invasion of personal space, and 40+ years now Ive been nagged about flossing..,
The whole time, she was singing o little town of bethlehem and little drummer boy and what child is this? Jesus H Christ! Then leaving I stopped at the grocery store next door. That goddam bell ringing - what did they do, a study to dicsover the most grating sound in the universe? Then the grocery store with the worst christmas songs ever - The Carpenters meet Barry Maniloe or something!
All I could envision was Marlin Brando in Apocolypse Now.... The horror! The horror!
When will it all end? Arrrrggghhhh!!!
sadly, it will never end - there's too much money by big businesses (& opportunists) made on christmas-related stuff. one can only hope that 50 years from now (or sooner?) when all the right-wing evangelicals die, the younger generation of people will not carry forth those ridiculous traditions and habits.
All I know is this. Thank Thor all that Christ Mess is over for now.
(I borrowed that CM phrase from someone on here. It's a goodie.)
Just think the holidays are now over and everything can go back to normal again.
better days man!
