Tear Down the Walls

I hate when holidays come and things are closed. Even some websites just stick up a graphic that says "Happy Whatever, be back tomorrow!" And the newspaper doesn't publish, at least not the one we have home-delivered. It's funny that it's a holiday, which sounds like a good time, but yet it's often lonely. Things should be open instead of closed! There should be revelry on the streets!

Here in our little town, L.L. Bean's is open and I'm betting it's already packed with people returning their Christmas presents. The store will take anything back, for whatever reason, no matter how old it is. I have a friend who once returned a stained t-shirt, and when they asked for the reason he said, "It's holding stains." They took it. They give you store credit, which allows you to turn right around and buy the very same t-shirt you just returned, only without the stains.

It's only eleven in the morning but I can already tell that 2016 is pretty much like 2015. This is disappointing but not much of a surprise. Change comes from within, no matter what time of year it is. My resolution is to do some heavy interior renovations starting right now. (Apparently my husband does not share my feelings, since he just ate last year's leftover cheesecake.)
