This is just a little sketch of what happened to Mandy and I this past Sat night....(colored it quickly but whatever...)
Mandy wasn't feeling too well this past week, so we took it easy this weekend and stayed in. Early Sat night after some Chinese food and quality programming on the 5 English speaking channels we get on our HD television, Mandy got off our tiny couch to lay down on the floor and stretch out for a bit. Soon after, I decided to join her and, literally, no more than 2 minutes later our f'in Christmas tree said "Screw you guys for chopping me down!" and came crashing towards us. We've had the tree since Dec 2nd, and I swear it felt like it was waiting for the most opportune moment to make its attack.
Needless to say our plan for a relaxing evening was wiped away by having to clean up all the ornaments, take the tree to the curb and sweep up the millions of pine needles that fell all over....some of which I am still finding today, including one that was stuck to my arm this morning when I woke up!
Next year....A fiber optic tree from Duane Reade!! Just kidding.
Also, as you can see, the gentleman that I am, I did EVERYTHING in my power to protect my fiance.
( Ok, well THAT part didn't really happen...but everything else is true. )
Happy New Year!
