Now, don't you look at me like that! What do you mean, "What planet am I from?" In fact, I think you had better stop looking at me like that right now or I'll give you a bit fat knuckle sandwich! You know what... if you don't like what I'm saying about the holiday season, you can just leave right now, and don't let the door hit you in your big fat... umm, well, and okay I'll admit that I may have overreacted a bit. Again.
Hey, I tried. I did my best, but I bet you find the season as trying as I do. I'll admit it; I'm one of those people who find the holidays inordinately stressful. Can I go home and bury my head in that comfy quilt now? Hide from my children, and my guests, and the in-laws, and... No? You mean that we'll have to get through this together?
