I don’t know what the butler slipped into my evening tea, but it must have been powerful stuff, because I slept until 11:30. Madness I tell you!
I definitely need to jump start my brain because I want to go back to sleep, and that would just be unacceptable. So I’m going to hook up my brain to this 1000 volt battery of Deep Thoughts, and jolt myself into the Land of the Wide Awake.
Anyone else need a hit?
What’s the deal with people who get all grumpy about the Holidays? Did they not get the memo that this is the happiest time of year? Are they this miserable all the time, or do the Holidays just bring out their inner Scrooge?
How could you not get a bump of positivity during the Holiday Season? I can be kind of Bah Humbug during the other 11 months of the year, but if I can put on my Holiday happy face, why can’t the rest of the world? Are they doing it to upset me? Do they want to drag me down to their Grinchy levels?
Why would anyone want to risk Santa Claus’ wrath? Are they trying to collect coal so they don’t have to pay for heating oil? Do they like being branded as Naughty? Why would someone not want to be on the Nice List this time of year?
Doesn’t the Holiday Spirit infect everyone? Did someone develop a vaccine against it? If they did, why would anyone want that shot? Why does it surprise me that a Holiday Scrooge Grinch would love needles?
Seriously, though, how can anyone be in a bad mood this time of year? Don’t all the lights, the music, the idea of gift giving, and all the yummy Holiday treats force a smile onto your face? Who would fight the jolly? Why are there Holiday Humbugs out there?
Life is just full of unanswerable questions. This is the kind of thing a Modern Philosopher lives for…a conundrum to put the Deep Thoughts to work and to wake up the brain.
My brain is up and running now. Hope yours is, too. Happy Holidays!
