All I Want for Christmas
Most of us eventually get to the point where, when it comes to Christmas or birthday gifts, you really don't want anything. That usually arrives on that day when you look around and say, "where did all this crap come from?" That's the day you begin to feel that you've become a captive to your possessions. Then panic sets in as you wonder if you'll ever manage to get rid of all these -- things.
I've been burning a little tire rubber shuttling -- things -- down to the Sally Ann. I'm not sure they're all that happy to see me arrive any more. Funny thing is, I get back home to realize that, in my absence, all my -- things -- must have been breeding.
So, the kids want to know what I want this year for Christmas. I kept telling them "nothing" but I've changed my mind. This year I want "Blue and Lonesome"
