Happy Holidays!

I see happy families taking Christmas pictures with Santa Claus at the mall…

I see happy families lighting candles at home…

I see happy moms preparing elaborate holiday meals…

I see smiling dads putting up Christmas decorations outside…

I see eager children waiting for presents…

I see the bottom of a glass of Scotch, alone in an empty house… But I’m not alone, I have loneliness, melancholy, and Cutty Sark to keep me company.
