Playing Mind Games With My Christmas Tree

2010 Christmas Tree

I'm stalking my Christmas tree. I can't leave it alone. I spend almost all my time right near it, inching my way on the couch to be within arm's/branch's reach. Sometimes I switch to the chair on the other side of it; the view is nice from there too. I wonder if the tree wants me to back off and find some other friends. I wonder if it thinks I should have spent more time fluffing its artificial branches when I set it up. I wonder if it feels naked in the back where there aren't any ornaments. I wonder if it wants to be friends on facebook. I wonder why it never writes clever messages to me on Twitter. I wonder if it knows that I'm considering a real tree next year. Heyyyyy. That would be a game changer, wouldn't it?

Wait, it would say, I don't understand. You can't leave me alone, for crying out loud! And now you're talking about replacing me?


I bet that would make my tree less critical of my overbearing codependence. Who's calling the shots now, tree, huh?

I don't think you are playing mind games with your tree... I think your tree is playing mind games with YOU. No one ever suspects the tree....

It's very pretty. I have a hard time leaving the tree alone, too. Just let it go.

You crack me up! Christmas trees are magical. Normal people are obsessed with them... it's the crazies who don't see the magic.
