CCC163: Gloria in excelsis

Gloria slammed the door on the carol-singers with their “Deck the halls”.

She didn’t want to be jolly. Or rather she wanted to be jolly all on her own. Why, when all year round they left her alone, couldn’t care less if she lived or drowned, must they bully her into enjoying their company? Just because of the season. No! No, no, and no again. She didn’t like company. She didn’t want to sing, at least not their songs. She was okay on her own.

She put on her music, opened a bottle, sank into her chair, and skinned a spliff. NOW Gloria was in excelsis.


Happy Christmas. And please be considerate of your neighbours. Maybe they LIKE to be on their own and do their own thing. That doesn’t mean they are lonely.

    Gloria doing her thing. Nothing wrong with that! I have never, ever in my life had carol-singers come to my door. I swear it only happens in the movies πŸ˜‰

    Here’s wishing you a Happy Christmas doing YOUR thing! xoxo
