The exercise:

Kat and I went to a Holiday Market this morning and did a whole bundle of gift buying so I'm feeling much, much more ready for the big day now. Only a couple of things left and I should be all set.

Your four line poem topic this week is: Christmas shopping.

If you've had a particularly unpleasant experience, I'll understand if you need more than four lines to vent.

Mine:

I think I'll get two of those...
Don't you just love how that glows?
Oh, that will look great on Shawn!
And... where's all my money gone?

You sound well prepared then! I'm doing most of mine the week before Christmas, because that's when I'll be back from Canada. I've picked up some little things here and there, but there's not much room in my luggage for anything significant.

Heh, and I completely agree with the sentiment of your poem!

Christmas Shopping

Trudging through the snow,
That reaches to my thighs,
Trying to find the perfect gift
For one who's never satisfied.

(Chorus: Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way...)

I picked up on the Jingle Bells rhythm before I even finished the first line :)

Nicely done.
