A MESSAGE FROM THE BANNER BARON
My checklist for the day after Christmas reads something like this. 1. Extend deadline for 20% off banners sale through Friday, January 2nd. 2. Dress children in the unfortunate fashion selections sent by well-intentioned relatives and take/send photo. 3. Use all family members/guests remaining in household to stage used wrapping paper “bucket line” from living room to curb for pickup. 4. Dispose of unwanted fruitcakes in discreet fashion. 5. Schedule grocery store run to purchase all remaining cartons of eggnog before they sell out and leave me in the lurch. 6. Sort gifts into four piles: wrong size, already broken, send a thank you note, and “what were they thinking?”. Put all items from last category in garage storage for possibly re-gifting. 7. During remaining time, snack, watch football, nap, play with kids, and celebrate the joy of the season.
