A Story by KCthelastboyscout

enjoy the worldwide commercialization of a supposedly religious holiday

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO THE FOLLOWING: the family and friends who never return my phone the few ex-girlfriends I ever had. I assume NOW all your dreams came true without me in the my last girlfriend whose wound hurt the most and still has not healed...parents who forgo late bill payments in exchange for presents for the children who can't wait to play with their shiny new toys and lose interest with them after a few hours... credit card companies who can't wait for next month's billing statements...all the customer service departments preparing for those who successfully avoid holiday office the people who actually need extra socks and those, like myself, who watch the same tv specials every year. Charlie Brown, Christmas Story, It's A Wonderful Life, Rudolph, Frosty. You know the rest... to radio stations, department stores, grocery stores and all the places that play around the clock Christmas music. please God. make it stop. I'm depressed enough... to the street junkies who know we are in a generous mood this time of the year. last chance to get high before you start that New Year's resolution... to the real George Bailey's of the world. nice guys really do finish last. I'm not kidding. I really mean it...(enter sarcasm here) to the tv advertisers. Where I live everybody wakes up to a brand new car in the driveway... to the elderly and mentally ill placed in retirement homes and hospitals. The family forgot about you this year, but don't worry they'll make up for it next year. But that's what they said last year...SEASON'S GREETINGS to a small group of online writers who found the courage to express love, heartache and fantasies of all sorts...FINALLY HAPPY NEW YEAR... may 2018 be a better year than this one
... please
