I Miss...

...little children caroling. Really caroling. Because they like the activity and not because they desperately have to fill their bellies. I've only begun to see them wandering the streets and visiting houses today.

I used to have a smiling face and a few coins reserved just for them. I was a lousy caroler, you see. And despite that my own memories of Christmas caroling were good ones. I'd be a fiend if I were to deprive today's little kids of that. We've made them give up so much already-- things like interacting with neighbors, actual physical activity outside the schools...

Well, I'm off tonight. More work needing to be done and all.
