Remains of the Day

I’ve never thrown my sleeping bag or deck chair under my arm and hit the pre-dawn sales on Black Friday or the day after Christmas. But sometimes I wander out in late afternoon or early evening, when I feel the spontaneous urge to acquire Christmas wrap or holiday decorations for the following year.

This habit has a risk. There may be nothing left to buy. Or you find items such as the following:



  1. But where’s the fruitcake?

  2. Must be more popular than we thought.

    • No, I don’t think anyone sells fruitcake anymore. The anti-fruitcake campaign seems to have won out.

  3. Actually, I quite like the pink flamingo ornament. I’d buy it if it were under $5.
