Tomorrow it Begins...

I have a general dislike of crowds. Yeah, not a big fan. However every Christmas I look forward to hitting the Malls and doing the majority of my shopping along with my fellow man...and woman. Sure I get plenty of gifts online. But part of the holidays to me is going out and taking in all the decorations and scents and sounds of the season. It makes Christmas feel like Christmas to me. Now that I think about it I don't really mind crowds. I mean I like a busy airport, I go to Music Festivals, and every now and then I take in a popular club on a busy night. Hummm. I don't know. I guess it is more of a mood thing with me than a general dislike. Have you ever notice if you talk out your feelings they seem to work themselves out. Thanks for sharing my moment of self discovery. You have a nice day now!

I would reather sit back with a cup of hot chocolate during the holidays and just watch the people buzz around like bees working to get the precious nectar to take back to the hive. Its interesting to just sit there and watch how people react to one another. Some get so task driven, they do not notice their partner beside them looking at something and they loose each other for a few minutes. Others are so overwhelmed by the crowd, they cling to the person they are shopping with reassured by that contact. Sometimes, you will see a lonely shopper just puzzled as to which direction to go. So I guess I am not too fond of crowds, if I am buzzing in there with them. I prefer to be on the sidelines and watch while thinking about what is going through their heads and what type of people they are. And I can say I have only been to a pupular club a couple of times...and that is only when my sister dragged me out. LOL Even then, my sister would see that I would watch people. She found it interesting how I could start pointing out people and tell her a tale of was happening.
