A Public Service Message from the Department of Interior Peace of Mind, Division of Responsible Time Management (DIPM/DRTM)
The hour is late and the dog (allegedly) ate your Christmas-shopping list. Many of your custom-selected gifts remain back-ordered, unpurchased, unwrapped or unmailed. Some are just a bit too big or unwieldy for their assigned Priority Mail envelopes and boxes.
Your gingerbread house needs a paint job, shutters, a new door and sugar-frosted spackling for conspicuous cracks that developed in the foundation. One of the carefully crafted gingerbread children in front is inexplicably missing a leg. You’ve seriously considered creating a ginger-ambulance, a ginger-stretcher and ginger-paramedics, which you would totally do if you just had more … time. And four chocolate Oreos for ambulance wheels.
