One of my other favorite holiday traditions (other than the Hanging of the Christmas Muff ), involves the annual Attempts by Corb to defile Josie's Christmas Tree . This year, the defilement started early, the day that Josie's tree went up, before any ornaments were placed upon it. Josie came home that night to find that her tree had already been decorated with brightly colored packets of sugar substitute.
In the above example, Corb has thoughtfully transformed the fixture atop Josie's tree into the Blessed Maxi Pad Angel. It actually took Josie two days to figure out what was different with the tree, so cleverly had Corb twisted the maxi pad, transforming it into a decorative hat that gave the angel a jaunty Swiss feel.
Josie reported that she spent time with her beau Andrew, trying to figure out what was different.
"I know he's done something," she said. "I just can't tell what..."
Aha! Then, it hit her.
In other news, my birthday is now come and gone. Ah, well, it was fun while it lasted. Yesterday, I was able to get a bunch of Christmas cards done, and ordered a ton of stuff for the kids. They should be in good shape. Now, I actually have to buy stuff for other people!
