12/3 Betty Booping

Dec 3 – Ya know how some things don’t seem to belong? Like the Sesame Street song, “One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn’t belong …” I decided to wear a pair of socks that don’t quite belong either. I was considering my Snoopy socks, but Peanuts has a lock on Christmas. It belongs. I’ve never thought of Betty Boop as a Christmas icon, yet here she is with her little dog, Pudgy, hanging holly in her festive Santa hat. Yesterday, I complained about the snow. Today, it’s raining. To me, rain does not belong during the Christmas season, sort of like Betty Boop. I wanted to put up my outdoor decorations today. It’s either get wet or wait. But isn’t that life? It’s not all neat and tidy, but still we soldier on through the mud. Have a towel handy, Snoopy. Betty and I are getting wet.
