Anyone else feel like christmas just passed them by this year
The whole thing just came and went right past me in a distant blur, through a heavy fog of dazed and confusion . No Holly, No Jolly, No carving the Roast Beast, even for a notorious holiday humbug like me. Surely this Fairy is a least 40 percent Grinch, even on good years
So, for me at least, 2017 didn’t so much come in with a BANG and a big brass band, it just sort of crawled in through the cat door whimpering while no one was looking, hoping no one would notice and now it’s curled up in the corner and looking terrified while its sucks its thumb under a blanky. As well it should.
Can you blame it though really ? Who wants to be ” Baby New Year ” right after the worst spoiled selfish brat we have ever seen so far, at least in my lifetime
After all , YOU still have a lot of making up to do for your big brother Mr ” Brand New and improved 2017″ after David Bowie and the all the rest , and of course, Donald Trump
This whole year felt like being asked to walk the high wire on dental floss, all the while knowing all along it w as bound to accomplish nothing except go horribly wrong, knowing somebody forgot to pack a safety net!
Watching it the whole thing unfold with fingers over your eyes like a blindfold , but still unable to stop peeking through the gaps at the carnage, in sheer terror and stupification like at a really awful B horror movie
It seemed like every time I prepared myself for 2016 to finally hit rock bottom and thought no matter How much it would hurt for it to land face down at last on the dirty ground , it would just be a blessed relief after the way the year has been slip slidin away for of so long , and Then…Here comes The Trumpresidented Abomination
I guess it’s probably a good thing we are all feeling a little bit numb by now
