Traditional Christmas Memorex

A story I wrote for the Nudge Wink Report. It’s my holiday gift to you.

nudge. wink. report.

Ah, the first week of December. I don’t know about you but that’s when I traditionally pause and reflect on all the good times we’ve shared during a year that’s now coming to an end.

Hmm. Never mind.

Speaking of traditions, though, I’ve been thinking about those, too. Especially the holiday variety. Both those that have remained the same throughout the years and new ones that were hoisted upon me without my express knowledge and consent.

Some traditions are good and the earliest memories of them are engraved irrevocably in my brain. Like the time I opened the hall closet and found hidden on the top shelf a bunch of colorful presents. And, get this, they all said they were from Santa Claus. (Oops. Spoiler alert.)

  1. THAT’s my gift? If I’m honest, I was holding out for “Dick in a Box.”
    You’ve ruined Christmas. Yes, again.

    1. Maybe your name got on the wrong list?! What the hell have you been up to? Besides, I started boycotting Dick in a Box after it became the new Furby. Enjoy the gift! 🙂


  2. Do people really have Christmas trees like that? That’s awful!

    1. It’s not really a tree. That’s an optical illusion. It’s actually a holiday “igloo” made out of lights. The inside is hollow. (Where do you think I hid the presents?!)
