My sincere Christmas wish is that I’d like everyone to stop saying “See you next year!” during the last 14 days of each calendar year. Think about it. How often does some co-worker, friend, or family member gleefully shout out “See you next year!” and then laugh as if they’ve made the funniest joke they’ve ever heard? Hmmmm…let’s see, by the time I was about 7 years old I had already heard that comedic gem roughly 2000 times. This is another thing I would make a law against when I’m elected President or Sexiest Man Alive, whichever comes first. Don’t start calling me Scrooge over this either. I showed how sensitive I was with that penguin story yesterday didn’t I? (By the way, how many of you visualized a little penguin-shaped chalk outline on a sidewalk behind yellow police tape?) I think that from now on, whenever some Seinfeld wanna-be departs my company by gleefully shouting, “See you next year!” I’m going to just as gleefully respond, “Shut the hell up!” with a big smile on my face.

Yes, I am totally laughing my ass off over that “penguin-shaped chalk outline” comment. That has to be one of the funniest things I’ve ever put on this blog. C’mon, just picture it! Admit it, you laughed at least a little when you thought about it.
I agree….morons. LOL
Just say, “A whole year? 365 days? How’d I get so lucky?”
LOL, have to agree wholeheartedly with this one Phil.>The tesion is mounting for number 12……………..
Hey Phil, you sensitive guy, you !!>Hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and I’ll see you ……. next week !!! Take care, and have fun !!
I’ll be posting my 12th and final Christmas wish tonight since I know some of you will be away visiting family and such over the holiday weekend.
LOL . . . that does get annoying.
Oh, and I am looking forward to your final Christmas wish!
I’m afraid that due to your dentist comment…I will be retracting my vote for you as sexiest man alive…:0(
Linny-I may not need your vote. I’m sure I’ll win in a landslide.
