My very bestest friend is Mike, who lives in Alabama, works at Kmart in the garden area, and I love dearly, just got a promotion. He is both a wonderful, large hearted 58 year old man, and is also the biggest curmudgeon there is. He hates Kmart. He hates most of the whiny demanding people who shop there, but also hates those who work there. But hey it's a job in these trying times. Of all the people in the whole world, and the lord only know why, he was picked out of the entire staff to be Santa this coming Sunday. All I can think of is the Santa from A Christmas story. Oh, the poor kids!
