Last week’s cartoon was about the spirit of gift-giving, and asks the question: is it better to give everyone on your Christmas list the same thing?
This cartoon above might be a little controversial, since, you know, there is a religious figure in it, but it still begs the question: What if he IS the perfect man? And all that that implies? Keep looking, ladies, because you deserve the best.
But just because this season is supposed to be festive, that doesn’t make it so. I start out with high hopes, if not good cheer, and almost always feel I failed at the end…because not much changed. Oh, well, maybe New Years will do the trick!
