Not so wordless Wednesday...
Dear Random-box-type retail establishment,
We need to talk.
It's not me...it's you...
It's October 12, and I haven't raked a leaf, or carved a pumpkin, and I still have flowers blooming in my yard.
Your blatant attempts at getting me to buy buy BUY for the coming holiday season has reached its limit. I say "No Thank YOU" to your aisles and aisles of ornaments, Christmas lights and stockings this month. In fact, I say "No Thank YOU" to all tacky Christmas decor in general...but especially before Halloween.
What's next? Mistletoe on Labor Day? Stockings in July? The Easter Reindeer?
Your premature pressure to drain, squander and waste my hard earned money is making me tired. Therefore, I'm breaking up with you.
I'm just saying "No" to your commercial bastardization of a beautiful time of year.
Don't call, write, text or email me again. I will avoid you, and I think you need to know, your behaviour is co-dependent, and you need professional help.
What do you think about Christmas in October??
