The Meaning of Christmas

A convo today with one of my dear male friends.

Him: I am so bah humbug today
Me: Why is that?
Him: I don’t know
Me: That’s a shame
Him: I was listening to talk radio today
Me: My God don’t listen to the news on the economy its depressing
Him: No it was some Catholic station
Me: Well that should be uplifting, aren’t you Catholic?
Him: I was, well kind of, I don’t go to church but I listen to this show
Me: I would think that should count for something
Him: Yes that’s what I thought
Me: So what he say
Him: Oh that none of it matters no one remembers you when you’re gone anyway
Me: Well that is depressing for a priest
Him No not really it more like Christmas is about people not gifts or decorations
Me Yes of course but I like gifts, don’t you?
Him You know what they say money can’t buy happiness
Me: Who says that
Him: Everyone says that
Me: Yeah you know who says that? Cheap people do. (giggles)
Him I am not into gifts this year
Me: You’re not?
Him No they are silly meaningless material things.
Me: Shame, I will take the gift I got you back
Him You got me a gift?
Me Yes of course
Him What is it?
Me: It’s a lovely one I believe I went a little overboard,but I couldn’t resist.
Him Why not?
Me: It just so perfect for you, shame you aren’t doing gifts this year. I can take it back.
Him Well I wouldn’t do that
Me: My brother might like it
Him No I wouldn’t do that.
Me: Why not? I don’t want to offend you
Him No lets think on it a day
Me: OK that sounds good

  1. Did you really get him a gift or were you just messin' with him? That seems like something you'd do. Haha

  2. P.S. I don't get the whole money can't buy happiness thing. Money buys things. And things make me happy. Who ISN'T happy when they get a gift?

    I grew up very poor and I have to say, money has definitely made me happier. Just sayin'.
