(First an upper..Stephen (grandson) asks Jennifer to marry him, after a lot of consideration, she said YES! We are PROUD, they are a great couple)
As an adult the day after Christmas isn’t so bad. But as a Child it was hard to face the fact that you must wait another whole year, AGAIN! Then they think, oh shucks, school will start back soon.
For some adults it is about the same. Oh Shucks, back to work tomorrow.
Well you can do as we used to do, by Christmas night the tree and decorations were down and the next day three couples (Sherry’s sisters and their husbands and us) would rent a van and take off for a few days. Once in Florida one of the rented vans had an alarm system we did not know about. We set it off and had no idea how to stop it. For a few long minutes it went off, until my smart aleck wife took the keys and pushed the stop button. Otherwise we always had a ball, and were ready for the world when we returned.
OR you can start to wonder,
…How do they get the air in a tennis ball?
…How do they get the air out of a light bulb?
…Who decided what speed limits were safe?
…Who decided to eat eggs? (Glenda wanted to know, she saw where they came from)
…Who decided to churn milk?
…Why is Pink a color for girls?
…Who thought up the game of jack rocks and why don’t kids still play it?
…For that matter why don’t kids play hop scotch?
…Why was it called Hop scotch?
…Seriously, what keeps the plane in the air and the ship from sinking? LOL
…Who made fingernail clippers?
…Why do women carry a purse and men a wallet?
…Who decided my wallet should be in my left back pocket? (pickpockets?)
…Who was the person who said my hair part would be on the left side of my head? (OK, it used to be there)
…Why don’t every country have the same kind of power outlets?
…Why do the English drive on the opposite sides of the road than the rest of the world?
…What foolish person thought up sky diving?
..If you nail a fence to a tree, why doesn’t it grow higher with the tree?
…Who the heck had the bright idea of making paper out of wood?
Now, don’t you feel better that Christmas is over and you can get back to work? Aw.. Come on!
