what to get big chronic kids for christmas


are you having a tough time trying to figure out what to buy for those you love who don't feel well? you want something meaningful, yet fun; something that says "i know you're not at your peak, let me help you up a bit." you want to get something a bit more impactful than a warm sweater and a lot more fun than a treadmill. it's simple! all we need to do is go back to the late 1800's to shop for the difficult to buy for: the sickies, the wobblies, the weak and the unwell.

who says healthy gifts have to be boring gifts? pshaw! there needn't be any silent nights this chronic christmas. believe me, any one of these gifts under the tree is sure to get a rise out of your intended.



singing, "ding, dong, merrily on high" and "joy to the world." bring on the retro gifts and begone "general ill health."

seriously folks, if you celebrate christmas, hanukkah, solstice or kwanzaa, i wish you all the best of the season: a bit of ease, some peace, company and good food. i hope you're toasty warm and as well as can be.

a straightforward message at the end there: shocking, i know.
