Dear Baby Jesus, Thank you for my mom.

If you haven’t already completed your holiday shopping, I suggest canceling the holidays this year. It’s not worth the stress and mess. Traffic is a disaster already, shopping sucks in general, parties are over-rated, and I really do think Scrooge just got a bad rap. This far north of the equator, mammals are supposed to hibernate. I’m ready to start right now… well, after Zikr.
If you’re a woman and interested in the Samhain ritual and/or the Sufi gathering, please let me know as soon as you can, so I can get on with my planning.
If you’re a man and want to volunteer to chauffeur the women around, wash dishes, do laundry, or watch children during the Samhain ritual or Sufi gathering… I love you! You’re hired! Let me know how to get in touch with you so I can start coordinating your selfless service!
Just kidding… sorry gentlemen. I hope you’ll be very happy with the co-ed offerings this month and I promise to be more inclusive in the very near future.

Happy Jack-o-Pumpkin Blessings!


P.S. Please do NOT give the trick-or-treaters pencils, toothbrushes, vitamin-C packets, condoms or any other responsible items. They really just want the really good junk food like Peanut M&Ms, Cracker Jacks (the kind that come with drivers’ licenses), Snickers (full size bars, not those lousy little “fun size” piddly-winks), Bubblicious, and 12-oz cans of Coca-Cola Classic. Trust me on this.
