My Beautiful Wickedness


I really have to take down the Christmas tree today. I mean it.

Anyone want to help? Anyone? Bueller?

Yes, the whole family is about the joyous celebration of putting up the tree. But in a lonely annual ritual, it’s Mom who is standing there with the wads of paper towel trying to figure out how to get those Barvarian glass ornaments in the right box.

Christmas trees this far into January are like hookers on the morning walk home…everything seems tawdry, obvious, overdone, and past its sell-by date.

Anyhow, on the long list of things I’ve got to do before tomorrow’s party, that’s at the top of the list.

What’s the rush? You could be like a friend of mine who mails her Christmas cards after the first of the year, has her New Year’s party in mid-January and takes what’s left of the tree down around Easter.
