Uggghhh, I have a hangover. And it is not the one induced by alcohol. Although similar in nature — self-inflicted, sluggishness, bloated, feelings of guilt and remorse — it’s the holiday hangover and it usually takes a lot longer to get over than one induced by alcohol. That one, caused from too much cheer, takes about one, maybe two days, to get over. My hangover is going to take at least a month, maybe two.
Driving through Ruston recently, I admired the vivid Christmas decorations and shimmering lights downtown. Our whole city glows with color. The Civic Center is majestic in its red and white outline, and I love the illuminated silhouette of the squad car by the police department. Our storefronts are filled with beautiful displays, in rich and jeweled tones. I am proud of our town.
