1 largish mug chai, supplemented by 1 shot peppermint shnapps & 1 shot vodka
4 energetic kittens
1 jingly ball attached (safely, no points) to the end of a hanger
First, drink the augmented chai. Relax & enjoy the festive smell and comforting flavors. When you've finished, pick up the jingly ball thingy. The kittens will hear it & come running. Drag the jingly ball around the floor & into the air, for as long as you can stand to do so. If you're doing it right, the kittens will perform amazing and hilarious feats of derring-do, and you will end the evening laughing so hard that your stomach hurts.
Catch your breath, have a nice large glass of water, brush your teeth & head to bed. Your sleep will be deep and restful.
