Silent Sunday: On This Blessed Day…

I wish you nothing but peace, joy and love.

Unless, of course, you’re a hotel guest who stiffed me at some point. In that case, you can burn in the fiery pits of H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks. And if you’re someone who has abused an animal, a human being or any of society’s values this year, I hope Krampus pays you a visit and uses your entrails for a belt. Oh, and if you’re a Kardashian, a Trump or a celebrity who has no idea how blessed you are to have achieved your station in life, I hope you gain some perspective and turn over a new leaf in the new year.

And if you don’t, I hope you lose it all. Trust me, you will not enjoy working for minimum wage.

But other than that… I wish you nothing but peace, joy and love.

And so does Chelsea:

c0zyki-weaayiim“Am I getting paid for this, Hook?”

One last thing: as a boy I didn’t have many true friends (you’re shocked, right?) and it took me some time to grow into the self-assured, devastatingly-cool soul you meet every time you log onto this blog.

But that would never have happened without my family and of course, my friends, both in this realm and the so-called real one. For a broken teenager who once considered consigning himself to the void for reasons this adult can scarcely remember, I turned out all right.

But I had a lot of help.

See you in the lobby, kids…

About The Hook

Husband. Father. Bellman. Author of The Bellman Chronicles. Reader of comic books and observer and chronicler of the human condition. And to my wife's eternal dismay, a mere mortal and non-vampire. I'm often told I look like your uncle, cousin, etc. If I wore a hat, I'd hang it on a hat rack in my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. You can call me The Hook, everyone else does.

  3. I have the same Christmas wishes that you do! (Hoping for new leaves!) We all have a time where we needed some help, some more than others. Glad you turned out ok. (You did, didn’t you?) Love that dog! I am her agent and she needs TWO BISCUITS for doing this! Contract to follow.

    Robert, glad you are still greeting us “in the lobby.” Have a peaceful Christmas at home with the family! Love Chelsea’s pic! We have a Shih Tzu (Charley) just as adorable as your Chelsea! 🎄💛 Christine

  6. Merry Christmas, Hook. Happy New Year and I look forward to spending 2017 with you.

    I like your values Robert. I’d quite like to be the one to assign punishments for those who abuse others and animals but it sounds like I may have to go to He E double L to do so. Oh well, it does get cold in the UK.
    I almost choked when you suggested Trump turns over a new leaf. Warning before jokes like that please.
    Happy Christmas.

  10. Merry Christmas to you and yours Hook!
    Love your rant & wishes … couldn’t agree more ❤

  11. Doug in Oakland says:

    Maybe if Trump turns over a new leaf it’ll turn out to have been poison ivy…

  12. Theresa says:

    Merry Christmas Hook! Keep em comin! I look for your words of wisdom, daily!!

  13. You turned out more than alright 🙂
    Happy New Year!
