Every year, people ask me, "What do you want for Christmas?"
And every year, I say, "I want the same thing that every beauty pageant contestant wants: World Peace."
...And being declared the pageant winner, and therefore, the most beautiful, and evidenced by strutting down the walkway with a shiny crown and winner's sash for all the world to see...and hopefully not have the judges send the host over to say that there was a mistake and take away my crown and sash because I was not a winner but a loser, so get off the stage.
There may not be world peace now, but at the same time, in my small piece of the world, I have peace. And I hope you have it, too.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to y'all. May the holidays surround you with peace & love. And may the New Year bring you good fortune, good people, & good times.
