I actually don't think I've ever sent a Christmas card.

I do have fond childhood memories of my dad doing a dramatic reading of my aunt's annual holiday newsletter when it arrived each year.

I'm not a huge card fan. I mean, of course I don't complain about getting them but I usually toss them right after reading them.

It is very rare that I send one.

Doesn't bother me but my H is very particular about closing the blinds.

Our house faces a quiet cul-de-sac and behind us is a tree line.

Mic yourself maybe?

I use an external mic and my students hear me just fine but maybe even a lapel mic?

Schwa sounds are a huge pet peeve of mine.

True, but I don't know how many people think about spelling when they say things. I imagine people say this stuff more than they try to write it.

Thank you! 1 just got 13.

A parent gave me a gift card last fall and I never used it. I haven't been in a mall since the pandemic so ordering these was a treat!
