Of course, 2020 is throwing it’s last best shot at us as we celebrate Christmas itself.
Putting a big red bow on our Cyrsti’s Condo Christmas past series, here is a look at a few of my past memories.
Along the way, I was always the great procrastinator. I thrived on the pressure of finding a great gift at the last minute. So, all of the sudden, here I was out shopping in my fancy black pant’s suit, blond wig and wool coat wondering just how much courage I could muster to pickup the perfect gift.
As it turned out, the perfect gift that year turned out to be an oak book case which matched the oak roll top desk we had purchased for my wife earlier in the year. I ended up bravely going into an oak furniture store and finding what I was looking for.
So far, I had done the easy part. Then I had to buy it and get it to the SUV and get it home. All before she returned home from work and I had to transition back to my guy self.
Before all of that, I had to hitch up my big girl panties and approach a rather gruff guy to tell him what I wanted. Surprisingly enough, he smiled and offered to help me complete my purchase. Plus for the first time in my life, I didn’t have to be the one who had to worry about carrying a heavy/bulky object to the SUV. My only task was opening the back of the vehicle.
I made the fifty mile trip home in good shape, was able to find an ideal gift, and the saddest part of all, return to my boring male self before she returned home.
I hope this series of posts hasn’t bored you too much. Plus I hope you have a festive and safe holiday season.
