"This isn't an ordinary treasure hunt, of course. No buried treasure or, really, anything of value at the end (Sometimes, I think I missed my calling in life when I passed on being a motivational speaker ;). Not much more than the pride in the knowledge that you figured it out and/or the passive-aggressive loathing you'll feel as you obsess over how I'm not so clever as I think, after all (although, hate me in moderation. You don't want to forget to stick another pin in my effigy before you burn it). This is quickly turning into a very dark post ;) Of course, I, like most people I know who are around my age and have families of their own, dread the holidays. I love the fact that my kids are having fun, but the women (no offense, ladies...) in my family take this whole shebang way too seriously and the long hard journey to the day after the day after Christmas almost always includes at least one emotional breakdown, semi-psychotic episode or in-fighting about who did what better than whom and enlightening conversations that begin with "can you believe what he/she ...blah, blah, blah." I think if we all just got back to the commercialism that the holidays are really all about, everything would be perfectly fine and we'd all be happy again."
