The Christmas hype has begun. It’s amusing, in a way, to see the children I used to buy so much stuff for, now doing the same for their kids. These are the kids who, once they reached the age where it was sort of expected that they would do something for the people who had provided them with gifts, and memories, and wonderful holidays, for years. For the most part, they didn’t choose to reciprocate, or they ran to Walmart and bought some junk.
They’re still running to Walmart and buying junk – standing in line for hours and spending money they don’t have on junk the kids won’t want a couple months from now. But try telling them that! Whooooeeeeee the cussin out you’ll get.
