This one’s in honour of my friend who just returned from a week in the balmy Dominican Republic to the cold North American misery we’re dealing with right now.
Here’s what happened last week in my Christmas-season-related life, in numbers:
16: number of Christmas cards written and mailed (yours is in the mail)
2: number of Christmas cards already received
0: number of presents bought
1: number of possible ideas for family-related gifts
$51: approximate amount of money spent on alcohol
3: number of parties attended
1: number of those parties being Christmas-related
1: number of times ill and hungover as a result of said parties
1: number of backsides I’ve grabbed, on behalf of other people, in the name of Christmas
$77: amount of money spent on cab fare home from aforementioned parties.
And I’m just getting warmed up for this week’s onslaught, which starts later on today.
Hoo boy. That’s scary.
