I was coming back from picking up my lunch today at noon and a woman with a very somber face was approaching me from the other direction. I smiled at her and said "Merry Christmas". At first she looked a tad startled, then she smiled back at me and said "Merry Christmas" in return.
This is my favorite time of the year, which is why I will seldom blog unless the lame-duck, lame-ass Congress does something egregious. And if each of us were to smile and greet a complete stranger on the streets, something good might happen.
Or we might get locked up on a 72 hour mental health hold! It can go either way.
