Remembering the Story
Oh Navidad season. Why must you torment me so?
Why must a gringo wearing a Tag Heuer watch always be around me when I’m trying to shop for mi Linda?
Why are some American women nicknamed “Pussy?”
Why must there always be someone wearing a Santa Claus hat on the metro?
Why must I have that desire to punch him?
Why must diamonds be a girl’s best friend?
What exactly is butterscotch?
Why is flan never on sale?These are some of the questions that I have been asking myself as I walk through the streets of DC trying to find answers.
Then, I found it. I found my answer:
What is this you ask?
Bueno, this is a midget, of sorts, blowing glass with the help of that white dog/dragon from The Never Ending Story.
There I was, a beautiful Guatemalan, walking down the streets of greatest city in the world when the brand new Macy’s window decorators made me see what it was that I was forgetting.
Si, I had forgotten all about the magical Christmas story of the midget blowing glass with the help of the white dragon. Don’t you remember this story?
It’s the story about how the white dragon flies over the manger where Jesus Christ himself was about to be born, but realized that he didn’t have a gift to give the savior. So, he flies to the moon and tries to enlist the help of a dyslexic midget to make a gift for little baby Jesus. The midget doesn’t want to help at first until the white dragon blows a magic fairy dust into her face which makes her cooperative. Do you not remember this wonderful story from the Bible?Macy's did. Macy's is always there to make us really remember what Christmas is all about: Flying dog dragons.
Gracias Macy’s. Gracias.
