Life Lesson #4
It’s Christmas Eve and I’m suddenly reminded of two life lessons I’ll most certainly need to teach my son one day. The first is this: Always listen to your mother . . . UNLESS she tells you to leave healthy cookies out for Santa on Christmas Eve. Healthy cookies don’t do anyone any favors. You’ve been good all year; don’t ruin that hard work the night before the big day! As you can see below, the consequences can be severe. (PS - Raisins have no place in a cookie!)
The next lesson ties into Christmas as well, which is why they're linked.
Santa is a kind man who delivers toys to all the good girls and boys in the world. His helpers, however well intentioned they might be, are not always as jolly. So lesson #5 is quite simple - Trust your instincts, son. Trust your instincts.
|Um, yeah, has anyone signed up Santa for anger management?? Might want to get on that.|
|Riiiiggghhht . . . someone call 9-1-1|
|Yes little boy, the Santa behind you is indeed the man you saw last night on America's Most Wanted. Run!|
