Getting into the Christmas spirit.
Since it’s Christmas Eve, I wore a Christmas hat for much of the day… out at lunch, on the train home, that kind of thing. I discovered last week that wearing a silly hat can make some of my workmates laugh, and it seemed like a small price to pay to bring some laughter into the world.
In fact, hardly anybody laughed at me. At least, that I could see.
As I came home, the Christmas spirit was certainly evident. Half the shops were shut early. The checkout chicks in Safeway had lost the Christmas hats they’d been wearing for the last fortnight. And out on the street, one driver beeped loudly at another, and got the finger in return. Ah, Christmas, you can’t beat it.
