...only human...

Greetings! I am following up my last post with variations on a theme as on this day in 2000, the United States Supreme Court released its decision in Bush vs. Gore. Remember that at all? I can't imagine how stressed Gore must have felt and Bush also. Sometimes I forget that people in almost unimaginable positions are still human and have human reactions and feelings. This brings me to a day in history a long, long time ago. It happened even before I was born so I cannot swear to it's authenticity but it may or may not have happened. I will change the color and type so it is easier to read and absorb. You may want to have a hankie handy as it may touch you...and I think that you all will be able to identify with this story.
When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.Then Mrs Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum.. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drunk all of the cider and hidden the liquor. (yikes) In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the clean kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found that the mice had eaten all of the straw off the end of the broom.
Just then the doorbell rang, and irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?'And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the
Christmas tree. (thanks to Jamie) Enjoy the biggest Full Moon of 2008 tonight.
