Cold Lunch project journal #25

The day after.

That sounds like a title for a post apocalyptic novel, or short story, and I’m probably not the only person that thinks that. I’m sure if I did a little looking I’d find it attached to a great many stories about that same exact topic. But, what I’m talking about is the day after Christmas. If the day after Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping day of the year, then the day after Christmas is probably the busiest day regarding returns, or something like that.

And, I have no idea why I’m even talking about this. My head is kind of swimming, and I can’t really find anything else to talk about, other than how hot it is in here.

I’m melting.


But, beyond that, yesterday was Christmas, last month was Thanksgiving, the month before that was Halloween. Nobody really needs me to tell them that. But, what I think is lost each holiday season, something that’s buried beneath the PC Happy Holiday stuff, and the commercialism, and all that happy crappy. What the real message is, the message of any holiday, is happiness. It’s a time to embrace the happiness and the things that make you happy. Embrace happiness.

And, I’m not sure if I’m making any coherent sense at all.

I wrote scene/chapter 22 of Cold Lunch. I wanted to write and type scene/chapter 23 too, because that would be the end of this first quarter. And, I could take another short break and maybe get the outline for another novel cooked up. Or work on typing one of my other novels. I dunno.

I dunno.

What do you do on The Day After Christmas?
