I have observed that during the last three weeks of December
the psyche of – well, everyone – kind of runs off the tracks.
Is it Holiday Stress?
Ancient Childhood Traumas haunting us?
Too much awful Mall Music?
Or maybe that old standby, All of the Above.
Regardless, I hereby predict that many of your friends and relatives
will become strangely neurotic, cranky, and difficult –
not to mention stark raving mad –
at some point in the next few weeks.
Plan on it.
What or who is the stressor for you in December?
