“Are these the shadows of the things that Will be, or are they shadows of things that May be, only?

“I don’t know what to do!” cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath; and making a perfect Laocoon of himself with his stockings.  “I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a schoolboy.  I am as giddy as a drunken man.  A merry Christmas to everybody!  A happy New Year to all the world!  Hallo here!  Whoop!  Hallo!”

from ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens

A couple days ago

I was watching people ice skating at the mall

it might have been Wednesday

or Tuesday

I guess it doesn’t really matter

unless

I thought

(to myself)

it was Christmas Day

then I

quite excitedly

after spending the night in the company of Spirits

could look down from my window

to find a young kid

(dressed in his Sunday best)

and

after checking with him that it was, in fact, Christmas

ask him

to go buy me a Turkey
