The Gift Outright


O
wow
today
I learned
a new trick
that has nothing
whatever to do with
Christmas but I thought
I would have a little fun
and possibly amuse some of
you at the same time. However,
if you are not amused I cannot do
one earthly thing at all about it with
the possible exception of cheerfully refund-
ing your money and then going back to my room
where I shall weep many buckets of bitter and salty
tears
after
which
I may
kill myself.

Oh, please don't kill yourself!! Nor weep buckets of salty tears!

Your wordy tree is clever.

a lot to do with nothing to work with is what i call this latest post of yours

Pat, thanks! Actually, I have your blog to thank.

Putz, it wasn't so much to do; this post practically composed itself in what was probably record time.

Crikey, your tree brings back memories from my English teaching days. Going senile, can't remember what they're called.

O
my
I fear
that I am
confined to
only half of a
Christmas Tree. I
guess that one might
be always limited by the
templates of comment boxes;
AKA "left justification". I will not
weep great buckets of tears but instead
look forward to many years of fun reads of your blog.
Oh
by
the
way
do not
kill yourself...

O my I forgot
to
ask
for
my refund. Might you send a check
or might it be easier for you to
utilize a handy credit card? I
am also amenable to receiving
a cashier's check or money
order. Teller's checks are
also an option but I will
defer to the method that
is most comfortable to
your means. That said
I spent no money so
I guess that my
refund would
amount to
zero, or
better
put,
0.

Well you are a modern man lol
I hear kids talking like this meaning to tell people they actually don't care. lol
But I feel eerie talking about death. Its like saying if you invite the devil in he will come in.

Wow, Anonymous! I'm impressed! Two halves make a whole, even though one of them is upside down....

Lady's Life, I am definitely not inviting the devil in!

Grumpy Old Ken, I wish you could remember what they are called, because I don't have a clue.
