I donít know why people think that shopping in December is fun. Do people get dumber in large crowds? And yet, I went out and joined them. Voluntarily! Twice! Youíd think I would have learned after getting stuck in the mall parking lot yesterday. But I didnít learn. So today, I went out again. Out into the sea of stressed out shoppers moving like a mob, or else standing in the middle of the walkway. People swarming, fretting, honking. They become more like animals than humans. Itís absurd. Maybe I should spend Christmas with the reindeer. It might be safer.
