Tomorrow is ugly sweater day at work. We will have a contest and a Secret Santa swap. Having never owned a truly ugly Christmas sweater, I was loath to go out and purposely buy one. It is not easy to find them second-hand this time of year and I refuse to spend $$ on something that is intentionally ugly and only wearable for one cliched event a year. My version is inspired by Calvin and Hobbes as well as South Park. My boss will probably not let me join in any reindeer games once she sees it. But I am happy with it.
I guess it's only fitting that immediately following the event, I will have to start prep for my second colonoscopy. That is one part of getting old that is a drag. My first one was fine, so I was able to wait five years. If this one is OK, I can wait another ten. My mother developed colon cancer and she refused to get screened when it became standard procedure. I hate doing it, but with a family history I guess it is a necessary evil. I need to live a good long time to do more horrible holiday things!
