Last night we played a white elephant gift game with all of Jon’s family, and when it came time for Leta to choose a present she carefully looked over the remaining 10 boxes and picked the one with the shiniest wrapping paper. Inside was a Men’s XXL black t-shirt, and on the front was a silk-screened image of Homer Simpson. And there he stands just like Al Pacino in the poster for Scarface, half of his body in the light, the other half a shadow in the dark, but instead of a gun he is brandishing a remote control. When we got home she asked if she could sleep with it. I’m pretty sure this is going to be the best Christmas so far.
Have a great holiday. Much love from me and Jon and Leta and Chuck.
