It’s Christmas, or summer holiday time, or solstice season, or the long balmy evening zone.
The earth is unlikely to implode, melt, explode, freeze, be invaded by alien lizards, fall to Islamists or Marxists or Papists or Zionists or least of all the West Indies test squad, before the new year.
I hope we can all take a deep breath, smile, ignore the traffic, pay attention to the living, remember the dead, and gird ourselves for the coming Age of Enlightenment or Zombie Apocalypse.
I, for one, can hardly wait.
See you on the other side fun lovers! We live in interesting times.
