I think I relate to the Grinch now... Thanks to a conversation I had with my boss this morning I no longer think of him as just the sourpuss that lived above Who-ville.
The Grinch wants to stop Christmas from Coming... yeah, I'm TOTALLY on board with that - I'm not ready at ALL!
The noise was stressing out the Grinch - ditto.
The Grinch snuck into all the houses and stole the presents, trees, who-hash, etc. - me, I think I just need to sneak away to a few stores and I'll pay for whatever I come out of there with... and hope the kids like it?
The Grinch lied to a little girl just because she got out of bed on Christmas Eve... ummm... I'm not above that either.
of course... in the end the Grinch got into the spirit and there was the miraculous moment when all the whos loved their Christmas anyway. I'm counting on that happening for me too... really!
