My mailbox had two Christmas cards in it when I got home this evening, bringing my total up to four so far this year. Eat THAT. Yet, despite my unpopularity as far as christmas cards go, all was right in the world as my dearest Walter had sent me one of them. I could identify it by her handwriting, and by the fact that the return addy was Hawai’i. Duh, right? (I never claimed to be a genius, ok?!?)
Her card brought me the biggest nugget of joy that I had ALL DAY. The first bit of laughter erupted because Walter celebrates Festivus, not Christmas, so to get a Christmas card from her is about as expected as me suddenly having no head/man/emotional/self esteem issues – and we all know the chances of that is slim to none. The card itself was pretty funny, too, but it was really the handwritten comment inside which made all the bullshit of today melt away into a puddle of hysterics on my kitchen floor. It read, and I quote:
I hope you have an awesome holiday season!
And if not? Who gives a shit, you’ll be in Hawai’i soon!
Oh Walter, how lucky I am to have you to remind me of the things that are REALLY important in life! I am so thankful to have had you as a friend for all of these years, and I can only imagine the fun and hyjinx we shall have in 22 FUCKING DAYS!!!! AWESOME!! Honolulu won’t know what hit it by the time that I leave! *wink*
Thank you for everything. I LURVE YOU!!
