Sometimes I think my ideal job would be to decorate Christmas trees in themes. Like, if you had a winery, you’d hire me to give your tree a wine theme. Or, if you owned a bridal shop, you’d hire me to do up a tree in pristine white and crystal. That would have me shopping for ornaments a lot, something that gives me great pleasure.

I wonder if I’d get sick of standing back and admiring my work before placing a few more bows or shimmery glass balls on the branches that looked bare. Or turning on the lights to see the final dazzling product.

I bet not.
