Dark Brown Wednesday
Is it too early to discuss what I’d like for Christmas? Seems unlikely, given that Black Friday now falls right smack in the middle of Holy Thursday, a day that marks the anniversary of cowboys from Dallas eating turkey with Indians from Cleveland.
Casting my thoughts well into the future, as I like to do, I have to imagine that in something like 130 years, when I’m on my third lab-grown heart, my second right kidney (the left one being somewhat famous internationally for being an original 1964 model that simply won’t quit), and my—well I won’t say which liver I’m on—the emotional “first shopping day of the Christmas season” will have inexorably crept so far backward in time that it will actually fall eight days before Thanksgiving – i.e. on a Wednesday.
So in that sense I’m actually late with this list. However, since having received a King’s Ransom of heather tips from Thanh, the only thing I really need is one of these contraptions.
Giving a lighter fluid-fueld hand warmer to a friend this holiday season will not only provide real warmth to someone you love, but will also help rid our nation of the excess butane we've accumulated in recent relatively smoke-free years (an unintended consequence of smoking-cessation programs).
