I've got a feeling next year at this time won't be quite so cherry for the American consumer as the housing ATM closes, interest rates move up and the wealth effect of housing ends.
So get out there and enjoy the shopping with your fellow citizens this week!
On Best Buy on Wal-mart on Tiffany on Dixon's...
'Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the still
overpriced, on-the-market-for-six-months-now cookier cutter house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a realtor, mortgage lender, appraiser
The slick brochures and realtor cards were hung by the chimney
In hopes that a still-clueless prospective buyer soon would be there
