While most readers sympathized with my recent blog on the arrival of Starbucks holiday cups -- both the bright shaft of joyful light that they create in the world, and the severity of Lamont's error in neglecting to tell me of their joyous arrival -- I did receive, to my astonishment, a few comments suggesting that I had overplayed the importance of these cups. I am certain that my more astute readers are reeling in shock at this moment, just as I did! Nonetheless, I have graciously decided to provide further explanation, for those (weak minded) individuals who may require it.
Are you ready? Ok. This is what the world, the beautiful world, looks like with holiday cups!
And now...prepare yourselves...this is what the world, the dismal world, looks like without holiday cups.
If that didn't make it clear enough for you, I'm sorry to be the one to inform you, but there is actually no hope for you. None.
