1. It’s August 17th Already!

    LOOK, we all know where this is going, and frankly, I’m tired of it, you’re tired of it, we’re all tired of it.

    So let’s just get it over with, hmm?

    It’s August 17th already!

    And thanks to a visit to my local Dollar Tree today (though, interestingly, not the same Dollar Tree of “It’s August 15th Already!” fame), I can see that it’s high time, blah blah blah, start getting ready, yadda yadda yadda, magical season of giving, et cetera, et cetera, Christmas!  And then some comical reference to family summer plans that I’ve abruptly canceled so we can instead focus on this holiday.

    Thanks a lot, Dollar Tree, you’ve got me deconstructing my own comedy now. Pretty soon I’ll be reduced to laughing at my own jokes. No, wait, I already do that.  Heh heh heh “already do that.”

    But seriously, as I write this, there are one hundred thirty days until Christmas! That’s more than one third of the year!

    And here I thought the worst “Christmas Creep” was that skeevy department store Santa at Korvette’s in Port Chester on whose lap I was forced to sit to have my picture taken back in 1976 and —

    No.  No, I won’t go there just for the sake of a cheap, inappropriate joke.

    Not during this joyous time of year.

    Heh heh “Christmas Creep” joke.
