I’m starting to get a little cranky. What about? Let me tell you.
So while Boo and I were being tourists at Block Island (I promise this is the last time I’ll mention BI. And to a certain special someone, I promise we’ll let you know the next time we are in RI. And Google be damned, we will find you!) I bought a Christmas ornament. This was a perfectly acceptable purchase as vacation etiquette calls for the purchase of ornaments no matter the season. So it didn’t bother me that there was a giant Christmas tree in your face when you stepped into this shop.
Then we got home. And while running some errands on Sunday we passed a Hallmark. And what was right in my face? A Christmas display.
Now what I am hoping is that this was a merely a clever sales ploy that was hoping to bank on the concept of “Christmas in July.” You may recall that I take my Christmas marketing very seriously. I would have been pretty pissed to find out that this was just a VERY early attack plan.
Then I got back to the city. And as I was leaving work the other night I walked passed the Hallmark. And WHAT was RIGHT IN MY FACE???
A CHRISTMAS DISPLAY!
Okay, just breathe. Don’t strangle the employees setting it up. It isn’t their fault. It must be a corporate thing. I’m STILL hoping that this will just prove itself to be a “C.I.J.” deal. But come August, if the ornament tables are still in the front windows and the tree is still set up in the entrance, I’m going ballistic.
The dancing Santas won’t stand a chance.
