The Holiday Season can be a challenge even for the wealthy, gainfully employed among us, to say nothing of all us unemployed gift-givers. The one advantage the unemployed have this year is time. Time to find the perfect gift, something different, something real, something meaningful, something like a phone conversation of undetermined length with Mr. Belding.
If I had lots of time and lots of money, I would call him every day at the same time and try and form a real friendship only to suddenly and without explanation stop, causing him to wonder for the rest of the life what happened and if we were really friends. Sure it would cost thousands of dollars if you wanted to do it right, but is thousands of dollars too much to pay to make TV’s Mr. Belding think about you every day at the same time and wonder “Why?”
I think not.
