I woke up this morning freaking out. I had the “how the hell is Christmas less than two weeks away?” moment.
Maybe it’s the pressure I put upon myself to find “the” gift or the innumerable sugar bombs I drop into my stomach via cookies, cake and eggnog.
At any rate, I had given myself a few minutes of screen time before really getting my day going; I noticed this video a friend had posted to Facebook. And as I was sat at my kitchen table laughing so loud I’m sure the whole neighborhood could hear me the stress seemed to subside. For the rest of the day all I could think of was Billy Eichner shouting “someone wants a god-damned partridge, I know it!”
Also…Amy Poehler, need I say more?
