Are you already singing the song? You know. The one that begins with these words, “You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch”? Last night I watched this cartoon favorite again, which is something I do several times each holiday season. I even have a green Grinch mug for coffee this time of year. I like the funny dog, to be honest.
I’m not sure I usually watch the ending, however. But last night I did since there wasn’t much else on television. I even listened to the Grinch’s toast as he sat with the Who Family and prepared to carve the “roast beast.” He lifted his glass and spoke of kindness and love. It caught my attention (and unfortunately, I can’t get the song out of my head).
