Holiday commercialism

Hooked on the Arts by you.

Well, where was I Christmas Eve? Cozied up with my nephew reading a book?  Laughing with my sisters while whipping up egg nog? Teasing my dad and watching DIY? Uh, no. I was shopping. No warm fuzzies or relational growth going on at all. And look what I found: a Hooked on the Arts Fish in the store! I had to roll my eyes, knowing that as much as I love my fish statues, this wasn’t a great find on Christmas Eve. Especially since I’m fairly ashamed to admit where I was shopping. None other than the merchandising capital of commerce — Harley Davidson. Can you see the saddle seat on the fish’s back? The fish hook attached to the handle bars? The exhaust foot rest? I have to admire the creativity of the design. Because I nearly loath my willingness to pay three times the price for an item because of its name brand — and be so glad to find the right size! Merry Christmas Eve.
