Little Letters | Of Chrismtas, Twinkle Lights and Sherlock Holmes
Where did you go? Are you playing an April fool’s joke on us and really, it’s only March? I’m serious, you zipped by with alarming rate. I refuse to accept the premise this is because I'm getting "old."
It seems impossible to believe that in less than two weeks, the world will be ringing you in. Wow. Another year gone, another New Year about to be ushered in. What will you bring?
Please, keep yourself organized and while I’m being all demanding, please read yourself.
Dear Christmas Checklist,
As I (mentally) check off each item on your list, it seems another to-do has popped up to take its place. What happened to our former sense of copacetic cooperation?
Dear Christmas Tree,
I’m glad I switch up your theme to “elegant sophistication.” You wear black and gold well.
It’s official. I’m a fan of the adorable vinyl figures one can buy under the Funko name. I haven’t decided if this is a good thing or a very dangerous accomplishment.
Dear Hallmark Channel,
Thank you for the sensational “Countdown to Christmas” line up this year. There were so many new favorites among your 10+ originals this year. Looking forward to whatever 2016 brings.
Congrats. See, I knew you had what it took to finish that crazy thing called college. All that stress was for nothing. Whatever is next, remember to stay awesome.
Please go away. We are no longer in need of more moisture - we're so waterlogged, the warm temperatures come with a chill because of all that dampness in the air.
Given the amount of fog that has been overwhelming the Midwest, when you travel our way tomorrow, that nose so bright might be in high demand.
Dear Sherlock Holmes,
I. Cannot. Wait. Your return to TV (and Victorian England) will be epic.
Dear Twinkle Lights,
‘Tis true I may over deck the house with you, but what’s Christmas without you?
Finally, I’m saving this last –though not least important, letter to close out today’s ramblings. A million and one thanks to you all who have been such amazing readers (old and new alike), friends and supporters of DUTSM – you all know who you are. I’m always grateful, but it seems with the end of a year, I’m reminded afresh of this amazing community. I am so honored, thrilled and grateful for another fun year here and continue to enjoy your return company.
