The tree is sitting in the living room, there’s not that many presents under it and not that many people to ooh and aah who gave what to whom.
It’s Christmas 2017 in the city of Boston, and guess what?
It actually IS a white Christmas .
Snow is falling from everywhere and I can’t even see Boston Logan Airport from the window, even though it’s very close to the place that I’m staying in.
Christmas is usually a time to eat, be with the family and of course , watch all those basketball games that come on every Christmas .
This Christmas , though, I can’t do any of those things.
My Christmas present from the city of Boston was to get sick.
I couldn’t eat, hang out with the family or even watch any basketball .
(That’s how I know that I’m really sick when the SportsDiva can’t listen to or watch a sporting event )
Tea, Motrin, Toast and Soup were my companions for Christmas .
As I was leaving to go back to New York the next day, it took me a long time to pack.
I finally did it at 2:30am and then went back under the comforter.
Thank you Boston for your Christmas gift to me.
OH WHAT A CHRISTMAS !
