If you give a man a string of Christmas lights…

Today’s post will be told in story-book form, a la Laura Joffe Numeroff (of “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” fame).

.

*ahem*

.

If you give a man a string of Christmas lights…

.

Why do Christmas lights always look so wonky during the day?

.

He’s going to ask for an extension cord.

.

Small porch = lots of lights, no? Ignore the untrimmed edge on our porch roof, we have a teensy bit more work to do to finish that project up.

.

And when you find him an extension cord,

.

He strung (stringed? strewed) lights along our porch, and all the way along our front fence.

.

He’ll probably ask for approximately 3 more strings of lights.

.

He even put lights across the gate. That man knows how much I love sparkle=)

.

When he’s finished putting them up, he’ll ask for another extension cord…

.

The view from our kitchen’s big picture window.

.

But there are no more extension cords, so he’ll need to go to the store.

.

Cruiser is doing his best to look cold & pitiful & worthy of being let into the house early, even though he knows it’s technically still potty-time.

.

He’ll come home with circus peanut candy for his wife, just because he knows she likes it. And because it is Sunday, and you can’t buy wine on Sundays in our &%*# state.

The End.
