Have you ever read a book and became so invested in the story?
So much that afterwards you find yourself in a fog and not quite ready for reality.
It’s like you’ve just been rudely awakened, and instead of doing things you have to, all you want is a comfortable chair and your book back.
So the other day I was at one of my jobs. I run the front desk and if no one comes, then I get to spend my whole time reading a book.
Sweet right?! Well the other day we had hardly anyone come in as there were a tone of Christmas parades, Christmas parties, Christmas craft fair, Christmas stroll, etc.
So I just spent the whole time reading.
But then afterwards I had to run some errands before I headed out to the cookie exchange that I baked all those cookies for.
I went to the post office to mail some things, but it was like a fog had descended on my brain.
I was still back in the book I had just finished and unable to answer questions immediately. I even put my pin number in wrong. All my mind could do was think back to the book I had just finished.
Oh well, I rather have my brain getting messed up on books than any other thing.

Today’s Christmas Carol is Christmas Don’t Be Late by Alvin & the Chipmunks.
As a kid I grew up watching their TV show and films, so they were always a staple, and this song was definitely sung around the holidays. It was written and sung in 1958 by Ross Bagdasarian Sr., otherwise known as Dave Seville.
It is a funny silly song that every kid can relate to as they can’t wait for Christmas to arrive.
