My Twelve Days of Christmas

Just hum along. My life this yuletide . . .

12 Feet of Garland 
11 Strings of Lights
10 Broken Bulbs
9   Rolls of Paper
8   Dozen Cookies                             
7   Pans of Brownies
6   Bags of Pralines
5   Loads of Laundry
4   Bags of Groceries
3   Missing Magi
2   Playful Pups
And an Advil with a glass of wine.

God, the garland's already shedding. Who wants all these lights? Broken bulbs, the heck with those. All this paper and not one roll with enough to wrap a gift. 

How many dozen cookies? And, pans of brownies? Pralines? Are you kidding me? And, this is not a hotel. We do not offer fresh towels daily - thank you. 

I guess I have to put the groceries up. What do you mean the Magi are missing from the manager scene? They were there last January. Where did they go, to Bahrain? You would think the pups would just learn to wipe their feet. I don't ask for much.

And, make that a bottle of wine with my Advil.
