Playing a Waiting Game


The roads are jammed in all directions with cars and trucks! Every store in town has big "sales," and crowds of people jostle one another to grab the best buys. Christmas music plays ad nauseam over loudspeakers. It's not delightful, it's frightful! The best thing to do is sit down, relax, and wait until it's all over.

He has given up!

What was he watching?

Kay said...

It looks like he even brought his own drink.
I think I'd prefer to burrow in at home, though his chair looks comfortable. But there's a lot to be said for the convenience of my coffee maker, slippers, and even my jammies if I'm so inclined.

Jack said...

I don't blame him. Time for football.

Randy said...

He looks comfy. What did the river say to me you ask, it's time to make a change.

William Kendall said...

I'd much rather be at home, with a nice cup of Earl Grey with an obscene amount of sugar.

Andy said...

I agree. The malls are packed here also.

He has the right idea, however... I would be sat in my own chair while chaos reigns outside!

He's got the right idea and he's found the perfect spot for it.

I'm staying at home or out in nature...definitely NOT shopping. :)

Or do it differently, like EG said. Or like me, reading, listening to classical music and baking...

Dear Lowell - You made me laugh by “It’s not delightful, it’s frightful.” Thanks for the patience, guys.

It's even better to sit on your own lanai sipping a cool beverage. And if you didn't get all your shopping done earlier, do it on line.

But it's a great photo and wonderful words.
