Life is always a bit hectic around Christmas. There's always too much to do in not enough time. Therefore it's quite acceptable to take some short cuts here and there to save a bit of time.

Especially, I may add, if you've just been in a city-centre Target on the day before Christmas Eve. A deeply unsettling experience where you can only tell the zombies shopping from the zombies working there by the lack of zombie motivation in the Target staff. It's remarkably similar to certain scenes in Romero's original Dawn of the Dead - only with many times more less healthy looking, ruder zombies.

It is at this point, when you've fled capitalism hell and are both waiting for a subway train to take you home, that short cuts are not needed.

Specifically, when reminded that we have to head towards Coney Island and not Manhattan, don't concatenate the sentence:

"Don't worry dear, I'm not stupid."


"Don't worry stupid."

This is apparently 'not appreciated' and I think that the fact it took my brain two seconds to work out what my mouth had said was the only reason I'm not under a N train right now :)

Anyway, Happy Christmas to you all and may you each consume an entire turkey. Apart from those of you that are veggies, in which case I hope an aubergine suffices...


P said...

Hahaha! Merry Christmas, hope you had a good one!

Fragrant Liar said...

Happy Big Apple.

Concatenation translation: Happy Holidays in the Big Apple.

Pearl said...

And a Happy and Hopefully Unfrozen New Year to You!

How dare you disparage the holiest of holies. Oh, and a tip... never ever wear a red shirt/sweater/smock/bra/tank top in Target. You will besieged with questions about whether they have more $5.99 bottles of Tide in the back.

Have a wonderful time with the Mrs. Happy New Year!

p.s. do we ever get to find out if she liked the shoulder mounted sex toy?

An aubergine did not suffice, so I ate some coconuts and bananas. Hope your dessert was equally satisfying.

P - I had a lovely christmas thanks. Not really recovered yet!

FL - Why thank you :) Hope you have a nice New Year...

Pearl - it's -9 outside right now, so I'm joining you in the frozen stakes.

Cheeks - that's a good tip :)

Mrs RS loved the present - I'll be posting about that soon.

GB - my dessert involved lots of cream. It was excellent :)
