all i want for christmas...
... is to live through it.
More Americans die from heart attacks and other natural causes on Christmas, the day after and on New Year's Day than on any other days of the year, the researchers reported.
Road Rage, deadly physical assaults in shopping malls, kids killing themselves with new toys and spouses shooting one another over adulterous activities at Christmas parties I could understand. But just keeling over and dropping dead on Christmas seems odd to me. Stress comes in many forms.
By the way, I want to thank all my readers who have sent me Christmas cards and gifts this year. I am stunned, impressed and pleased by your generosity. I would say that I am HUMBLED, too, but you know me better than that. But I thank you all, just the same.
I really mean that.
