It’s the most wonderful end of the world.
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone yelling,
“Demise is unfurled!”
It’s the most wonderful end of the world!
According to the internets, the Mayan calendar ends on December 21, and people thus think that the world will come to an end on that date. Which is weird, because my “12 months of puppies” calendar ends on December 31, but no one thinks that the world is going to end then. And there are a bunch of other calendars that also end on December 31. You would think that at least some people on the internets would be interested in the fact that the vast majority of calendars give us an extra 10 days to live, but no.
So in the event that either calendar has correctly predicted the end of the world, we should probably get together to celebrate the last poker ever. We had a good run folks. I think some spiced wine and Christmas cookies and Christmas music and movies are a fine way to ring in whatever comes next. Maybe we’ll actually play poker.
Let us gather at [—–] at around 8pm. Please RSVP with ETA so I know how many Christmas cookies is too many.
And just in case you were a skeptic, thinking there was no real scientific evidence that the end of days is nigh—
Dolin is invited.
