Victim of a Crime (excuses)

It’s 5:49 a.m. Pacific Standard time.  My good friend, Vic, commented on my post regarding the Punctuality theme.  He was a bit disgruntled because I haven’t posted for a couple of days, thus not staying punctual.  Since I love to make excuses, I have a couple perfect ones.  While shopping for a 767 foot Christmas tree, I was too exhausted after negotiations with the lumber broker and my wife to write about anything. The lumber broker actually wanted us to pay 100 dollars for the stick, and my wife actually thought it would fit in our house.  We are having family over for Christmas and I believe she was anticipating the tree should have the same ratio value as the turkey or roast beast.  Since 13 people will attend Christmas dinner, I figure a 30 pound turkey will suffice.  She thought, since 13 people will be here for a Christmas Celebration, we must have a 767 foot tree to make everyone happy.  Since we only had decorative accommodations for the 6 foot tree I could find for free in our backyard, this required another 100 dollars and 200 minutes at Target.  Tempers were growing and a man meltdown was ensuing.

After cutting 12 feet off of the tree, I managed  to cram it into our house.  Then in comes “A Very Elvis Christmas CD” and lights which are supposed to make me nostalgic and merry.  It was 24 hours ago when I began wrapping the lights around the tree.  I now sit before you writing this crappy piece because I need to be punctual.

The tree and I have kissed and made up, but more importantly, I wish to apologize to my friend, Vic, for not being punctual.  He was right.

Stay tuned for mediocrity.
