'Tis the Season
Fortified with my shopping list and checking it twice, I sat at the Barnes and Noble Cafe sipping an extremely strong cup of coffee. I pumped an abundance of sugar into my system as well by indulging with a piece of "to die for" classic coffee cake. Heaven. In other words I was out among the masses doing my "holiday shopping".
While gazing out the window toward the parking lot and nibbling on my coffee cake, I spotted a man striding through the maze of cars and people who looked very much like the actor, Larry David. I followed his progress as he made his way to the Barnes and Noble entrance, an expression of relief crossing his face at making it to his destination. I know how he feels.
At closer inspection it wasn't Larry David.
Brushing the crumbs from my hands and taking one final gulp of caffeine, I stood from my chair. Time to get going. Time to mingle with the other shoppers, elbowing through to the best displays, struggling not to buy something for myself, and clicking off in my head as I pick up fun and exciting gifts for my family and friends. ;)
Ahhh... the holidays.
