As each month follows, I grow more and more obsessed. Around October I startle complete strangers by bursting into my off-key rendition of “Joy to the World.” I’m always The Little Drummer Boy for Halloween, a grouchy one at that, since the inconsiderate stores haven’t even put up their Christmas decorations yet. November 1 kicks off the jubilee of consumerism, and I’m so riddled with the holidays season that the mere mention of a stocking stuffer sexually arouses me.”
