24 Days of Goodies
Today the kids get to start their Advent Calendars, the ones that have a hidden piece of chocolate behind every door, the thing that counts down to Christmas.
I was sitting here feeling so stressed with work, with impending birthday party that isn’t panning out, with trips this weekend and guests, with all the stuff to buy the families for Christmas, with the final stuff for the School Board thing I’m on, feeling guilty and sick and just out of it.
And I thought, what a damn shame they don’t make those Advent Calendars for adults.
Not with chocolate.
One day, you open the little door, there’s a Bloody Mary.
The next day, a pint of Guinness.
The third day, a shot of whiskey.
The fourth, a carafe of Riesling.
And so on.
And some days, more than one door.
I don’t think that’s too much to ask.
