It’s that time of year again…. “It’s the MOST Wonderful Time of the Year…..” That’s right Holiday season and by now the majority of Americans are recovering from an “OVER-stuffing” of Stuffing and Turkey by either doing one of 2 things Working it off in the gym or Walking it off in the Retail Stores taking advantage of the “Black” & “Cyber” Sales that the retail industry has conditioned us to look forward to year after year. I can only pray that I don’t see the viral videos of mass mayhem spurned on by the longing of Retail bliss. Well for me my fellow friends this type of Debauchery does not apply…. I loathe retail stores… Don’t get me wrong I love getting a good deal but I despise the fact that shopping has become an Olympic Sport. There are a few things I can of course appreciate such as Barn Burner sales by the Airlines such as SouthWest Airlines and of course whatever Tech Toys I can get my hands on. I do realize it is all in fun and games and if someone can save a buck to make their kids dreams come true on Christmas Day then I definitely applaud them for stepping onto the retail battlefield and making it happen. As for me I decided to spend my holiday experimenting with some new additions to my already perfect Gumbo, writing a few lines of code of course, watching football and throwing some football with my boys and my nephew. There is definitely a love / hate relationship I have with the holidays but it isn’t anything a nice glass of Makers can’t solve at the end of a rough Holiday!
Cheers & avoid the malls!!! 🙂
