careful there might be a blogger in your midst

22 December 2009

Overheard on the complimentary shuttle from my office building to a mall at lunch today – two people discussing their desire to sustain the joy of the Christmas spirit and keep things simple:

Him:  “Yeah, like that Boxing Day shopping craziness – I don’t do that.”

Her:  “Really.  What people don’t realise is you get the sales all week – it’s Boxing Week!  You can avoid the crowds and shop a few days later.  You might not get the sweater you want, but you’ll get a good deal.”

Er… is that called good Capitalist Christmas spirit?

    hahaha, I had to put off reading the whole thing until I get home because the kind of thing I’m supposed to be writing at work doesn’t usually cause me to laugh out loud.

    Yes I did Sartenada! They’re quite beautiful. I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to comment – I suddenly found myself late for work!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!
