The fall out from Charlie Brown’s Christmas Special

So I have this friend. We’ll call him David. “David”…was astonished to discover that I had never seen Charlie Brown’s Christmas Special. You see, “David” doesn’t know me very well yet. Had he known that I had never seen Star Wars either, he may have passed out all together. But I digress. Anyway, I promised “David” that I would make a point to watch CBCS this year.

So He asked me what I thought of it. In the pursuit of honesty, I launched into a bit of a diatribe about the psychological chaos of this show. Lucy is entirely too controlling. Sally and Linus are text-book co-dependent. Schroeder was a narcissist. And I have to be honest. It made me mad how everyone was so mean to Charlie Brown. And he never stood up to them. He just wallowed in self-pity. In fact, the only character I liked was Pigpen. He was the only one in the bunch with any authenticity.

Maybe I should have kept these thoughts to myself. I haven’t heard from David since…wait….”David.”
