All I want for Christmas....

Where’s the Switch?…….

All I want for Christmas is…well ... you will never guess..
Lessons.
That’s right…, some that will “lessen” my stress….
Yes I know….you think I’m a whiz…
But when it comes to electronics I’m really a fizz……

Indeed……I’m useless ….a real techno-dweeb.

Give me a simple thing… like…change the car’s oil,
Or, . Hey! Just watch me through a special recipe toil.
I can sew tiny bears with precision and care;
Even motorcycles … Yup, ..I’ve learned to ride and repair……

But, please! Don’t hand me that evil “remote”.
In MY hand this wand possesses no magic power …
I can still miss “my show” by more than an hour!


Frantically I wave it…press it; twirl it,… point it north and even south…
Curse these buttons, knobs and switches!! is it how I hold my mouth?


My antics provide someone his quota of glee…..
Of course it's not right and I often despair,

But who wants to listen or even to care?
I demand a simple unit with an ON/OFF switch!!…
Designed by a woman and with no hidden “glitch”.
What’s wrong with straight forward that works every time?

And you write poetry, too?!!! Good heavens, I can't imagine that a remote would cause you that much trouble...btw, did I miss The Amazing Race tonight? Ackkkk!!!

Just in case I miss you, be certain to have a very Merry Christmas!
