'Tis the Season

You know it’s the Christmas season when…
You receive a 5 lb fruitcake aka door stopper from Aunt Millie...Fed Ex
The blinking and chasing Christmas lights are giving you vertigo.
You hear “Grandma got run over by a reindeer” on the radio.
Every third television commercial is a Chia commercial.

One of the best things about the Chia…is the song for the commercial. That jingle is so catchy that you catch yourself singing it all day long. Okay, maybe that’s just me. Ch-ch-ch-chia.

The Chia itself is as clever as the song. Over the past 20 years the Chia has come in different figurines…animals, cartoon characters and heads. Now what could be more fun than watching Homer Simpson or Elmer Fudd sprout a full head of Chia hair? Sort of a Homer on Rogaine.

Did you know now they have Chia grass for cats? I didn’t know cats ate grass. But then, other than my name…I am not a cat person. At least this Kat is smart enough to know better than to eat grass…although I do enjoy some sprouts now and then in my sandwiches. Ch-ch-ch-chia.

I’m thinking of making this a Chia Christmas. Chias for everyone on my Christmas list…just don’t tell them. I want them to be surprised by the WONDER of Chia. Aaahhh Ch-ch-ch-chia. (Stop with the jingle already!)

After all this holiday talk…I have an incredible urge to eat fruitcake, listen to that charming holiday classic “Grandma got run over by a reindeer”, and admire my Homer Chia in the glow of my blinking Christmas tree lights.

This blog might deserve a hearty round of applause…but wait…what am I thinking? Applause will cause my clapper to turn my Christmas lights off and on…and could cause a circuit malfunction. Hold the applause.

'Tis the season…to be tacky.

I got a Ch-ch-ch-chia pet for Christmas one year from my seester Juanita and her husband Carlos. It was the shape of a bull. It was kind of ugly though I have to admit I enjoyed watching the grass grow! Feliz Navidad!
