- I do not want to be sick anymore. I do not want to hang around with sick people or eat their food.
- I (am not and) really do not want to be a Christian. And I have zero patience remaining for christian Trump supporters after last week.
So, if you live in my town, please don’t expect me to participate in your Christmas rituals. I am not up for any part of it. And I will no longer submit and pretend I am.
Winter gatherings are the annual incubating ground of chronic physical and mental illnesses.
But please, do have fun, and enjoy the food and gift and microbe exchange.
