Christmas Lights

Damned if I do, damned if I don't
I've been sort of hiding out lately.  MoSup's been on my back about hanging the outside Christmas lights, a job I just hate.  Finally, this morning, I did it.  She just came home from shopping, and I expected hugs and kisses, etc., but no.  She stormed in, grabbed my Colt .45, threw it  in the dishwasher, and pushed "Heavy Clean" start.  JFC.  She's so anal retentive sometimes.

:) Merrily

I see what you did wrong. You forgot to hide the cord. There just ain't no pleasin' 'em.

Share your distaste for installing the damned things. Found the perfect solution:

1. suffer a significant MI
2. recover (this is important)
3. be absolutely religious about taking the meds they give you in rehab
4. develop dizziness when you turn your head to the left for more than 20 seconds or tilt your head back to look up for more than 20 seconds
5. make sure everyone knows about the dizziness side effect
6. don't tell them when it goes away, but make certain it's clear there's no impact on your golf swing
7. tell someone else to go up and put the lights up for you, but they'll have to come and take them down on Three Kings' Day
8. get dizzy once in a while just for the helluvit
9. keep forgetting to tell Doc about the dizziness side effect (the one that went away)
X. problem solved

Some years ago, I broke my neck. Stage diving. Lotta fun, until someone gets hurt.

No way I was telling the doctor that, when I finally went. Told him fell off the roof stringing Christmas lights. He bought it, so that's what I told everyone else. Haven't strung lights since.

Bah, Humbug! You're a bunch of slackers. Clark W. Griswold would be ashamed of you. It will be a cold day in hell (or Florida) when I'm too lazy to have my wife and kids hang the lights.

If you held a thermometer next to that birdsnest, and the temp went up, would that be 'glowball' warming?
