It’s amazing. Glorious. Fantastic. Did I mention Amazing? I’m talking about vacation the week before Christmas. And you know why it’s so amazing? Because I work in a department store—the kind where customers destroy tables of sweaters so they can find that size Medium for their Aunt Sally, only to change their mind and decide on a necklace instead. My friend Eddie is the visual director for the store and he can’t get through a sentence without using five curse words. He shaves his head this time every year because otherwise he’d just pull his hair out.
