The Taste of Gum


Today, I bit the bullet and wrote my Christmas cards.

Writing Christmas cards presents me with a dilemma. On the one hand, I want to get them out of the way as quickly as possible so they're not looming at me, but on the other I don't want to send them too soon then get one back from someone who has changed their address, divorced, died or otherwise caused me possible embarrassment.

It's rather boring writing cards, too. This time, I amused myself by looking up where people live on Google Streetview to see if I could spot their blurred-out faces (I didn't see any, but I noticed a few parked cars with blurred-out numberplates). I also sometimes missed my wife's name off the card to spook the recipient into thinking Something Has Happened.

I'm glad it's done, anyway. Now I only have to spend about £25 on stamps and I'm free until next year!
