A printed piece of paper with a photo of Jinkx Monsoon on one side and white text on a black background on the other. The text reads: “In this town*, murder** is a form of entertainment***” -Matron Mama Morton (*New York City, January 28, 8pm **Seeing Jinkx Monsoon in Chicago on Broadway ***Christmas present for you)
Just the very best Christmas gift. All photos courtesy of the author.

It’s Christmas morning, and I am an adult. In the last month or so, I have asked my family for a couple of gifts I think I’d like: a weighted anxiety pillow, a ring light that clips onto my phone, a few books. There is coffee and chocolate and French toast and some Christmas music playing in the background. Everything is nice. This is Christmas, when you’re an adult.
