Last Minute Shopping

Cars are bustlin’ and people are hustlin’, The avenues are backed up with shoppers Last minute hunters are getting frantic, Christmas Eve comes on Friday of this week One must come prepared for all the panic, As Impulse buying is on the increase With buyers getting more and more frantic, The hubbub will last for another week The helter-skelter probably won’t stop And, I’m not going to last-minute shop!
written December 22, 2021 [pardon me, but I took some liberties with the rhyme for a traditional dizain]

Same to you, Victor. Seems like my weeks are built around doctor's appointments. Enjoy your Christmas.

I had not been inside our super large super store for a long time. Joe and I went this week. Many of the shelves were completely bare; I found myself grabbing up soft socks in a "frenzy" as there were only two pair left. This poem reminded me of that.

Well, I hope you were able to find all you wanted. I have not Christmas shopped at all, because I have only one person I buy for, and we are going on a trip, which will be his Christmas present. He is my best friend, my helper, and my driver. Sort of like a son, I guess.

Lol!Milt, Guess what? I'm not finished shopping either. I usually wait until the last minute ( procrastination big time). I enjoyed the read:-) Alexis
