Twinkle Twinkle*

                                              

                                                Day One
Hubby: (returning from work) Why aren't the Christmas lights on? 

Me: Maximus was blow drying her hair. HONEY! PUSH THE RESET BUTTON IN THE BATHROOM!

Maximus: I'M NOT IN THERE ANYMORE!

Me: JUST GO PUSH IT!

                   
                                         
  
                                                     Day Two
Hubby: (returning from work) Why aren't the Christmas lights on?

Me: Because it's raining and that trips the invisible fencing that trips the breaker that shuts off the Christmas lights that worried the cat that killed the rat that ate the malt and we all live in the house that Jack built.

Hubby: Funny. Those lights take days you know. Just once I'd like to drive up and see what they look like.

Me: You do get to drive up and see what they look like. Tonight they look like we're Jewish. 

                                                      Day Three
Hubby: (returning from work) Why were the Christmas lights on when I left for work this morning?

Me: Perhaps you didn't explain to them the meaning of 'dusk'?      
 
                                                       Day Four
Hubby: (returning from work): The Christmas lights are on! Come see!

Me: KIDS! THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS ARE ON! QUICK! COME DOWN AND SEE!

Maximus: IN A MINUTE! I JUST HAVE TO BLOW DRY MY HAIR!

  1. A fun story, and a reminder that I need to go turn on my Christmas lights.

  2. there is also the conundrum of why there is always at least one string of lights that somehow refuses to light every year despite hours of electrical fiddling with small bulbs and fuses. my daughter recently tried to dry her tights with the hairdryer - more electrical issues...

  3. It is 8.22 am and already our Christmas lights are on, only because they are attached to the same cable that turns on my computer. It helps our postman see up our drive I am good like that.

  4. Funny! The lights on/off/where/which debate never seems to go away does it? No decorations yet, gotta get through the birthday first.

  5. Stephen Hayes- ...he says with absolute confidence!

    projectforty- Yes! Why? Why? And hair dryers are kryptonite to Christmas lights.

    Susan T- Bahahahaha!

    hausfrau- My daughter's birthday is Nov 27 so I feel your "birthday/holiday conflict" pain. Somehow we manage to pull it all together-probably because we're AMAZING, hm?

  6. Really funny! In the Berlin Newspaper of today I read that the Germans spend about 500 Million kilowatt hours for illumination on Christmas. Quite a lot to blow your hairdryer with!

  7. Britta- That is incredible but it must be beautiful! A dear friend of mine LOVES to visit friends in Germany over the holidays.

  8. We have some issues with Christmas lights, in the UK. It is a whole class hell.
