Macy's, May Not See Me!

Have You Spent Enough Yet?
After purchasing Christmas decorations and other holiday wonders, from Jamali Garden Supplies––a most fabulous and inexpensive store––I was walking up to my gym over on 43rd Street and 10th avenue last Friday when, overwhelmed with awe at the scene, I took this shot. For me, this says it all. I mean, does anyone look happy? And why not––it's the holiday's, ain't it?
Here's an alternative…
If you're wondering why you continue to participate in this contact sport year after year, an acquaintance of mine, the divine Lilith, will be giving a psychic performance entitled, “Money, Sex, Power: What’s Your Karma?” This mind-opening event will take place on Wednesday, December 18th––that's tomorrow––from 7:00 - 8:30pm, at the TIMES SQUARE ARTS CENTER, 300 W. 43rd St. (at 8th Ave); 5th Floor. It's an interactive show––including 15 random readings––that will examine the reasons why we do the things we do, and how we can fix it. To RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, phone number, and email. There is a two guest limit per person. The event is free; hold off on your shopping, until you get some answers. For a peek, go to What's Your Karma?
By the way, about Macy's––I mean no offense to my friends who work there. It's no joke to be exposed to constant rudeness, while on your feet all day. But last year, when I saw a woman expel her toddler out of her stroller, saying, 'you can walk, I need this (stroller) for my bag's, I decided that I would no longer cut through the store to the subway, stopping to say hello. I can see y'all after work.
And for those of you, who are having second thoughts about finishing those gifts in time? Take a long look at the above photo, then sit back down and knit.
