Albert Einstein, a genius who cheated on his wife, had this to say when a group of children asked him for a Christmas message: “Learn to be happy through the good fortunes and joys of your friends and not through senseless quarrels. If you allow these natural feelings to blossom within you, your every burden will seem lighter or more bearable to you, you will find your own way through patience, and you will spread joy everywhere.”

My family opens presents on Christmas Eve. It’s nice. Today my brother had to work and my other brother spent the day with his wife’s family. I went with my mom and step dad to see the Little Fockers and afterwards we drove around trying to find an open grocery store so we could buy some waffle mix to make waffles with my new waffle iron. I want chocolate chips in my waffles. My stepdad doesn’t. My mom is pretty sure we can compromise somehow.  We also needed cranberry juice to mix with vodka.

We found one. Afterwards while driving home we went by the casino. They suddenly wanted food, there’s a Fatburger inside. Of course it was open. I had never had Fatburger, and I hadn’t brought my wallet anyway (You can’t set foot in casinos here if you’re not 21, even if you’re just getting Fatburger). They went while I waited in the parking lot, and once they came back we ate it right there in the car with the windows rolled down.

Now we’re home watching some 80s movie. Merry Christmas!
