Holiday house of horrors
1. Overheard in the hardware store:
Daughter: Dad, we need to get these!
Dad: No, we have plenty of Christmas lights on the outside of the house.
Daughter: But that's the whole point of Christmas.
Dad: What? That's not the point of Christmas. Who was born on Christmas?
Daughter: Ashton Kutcher.
2. I did a lot of online shopping this year and discovered that the sound of packing tape being ripped off of packages really frightens Maureen. Then it should not have surprised me that the sound of packing tape being applied to outgoing holiday packages freaks her out as well. Had to do my mailings in the middle of the night.
3. Also, Santa Claus is scary.
