It warmed our hearts at Talonbooks to read M.A.C. Farrant‘s holiday greeting in Monday Magazine‘s 2010 Christmas Guide, taken from her book Down the Road to Eternity:
Jesus Loves Me But He Can’t Stand You *
I’m drinking alone this Christmas.
I’ve hired a wino to decorate my home.
I’ve put a bar in the back of my car so I can drive myself to drink.
Jesus, will you be drinking with me this Christmas?
Will you be thinking of me if you do?
My head hurts and my feet stink.
I don’t know whether to kill myself or go bowling.
*Compiled from actual country and western song titles.
