I always think of this drawing of mine when the holiday shopping frenzy rears its ugly head every year. I drew this at Rockefeller Center a few Decembers ago.
Oh, what I would give to take a nap like the kid in this drawing whenever I feel too tired to carry on with the lists and the bargain hunting and the out-of-stock debacles and the long lines and the “who did I miss?” panic attacks and all the rest of that good stuff. What. A. Pain. But it’s tradition, right? Yea, well, so was Chinese foot binding! Now, I’m not condoning Bah Humbugging the holidays. I love the holidays. But there must be a less painful way to show my loved ones that I care!
Thanks for listening to my venting! I feel better now. – Despina
