Great Moments In Outside-the-Box Thinking

Our well-known antipathy towards Christmas extends even to decorations.  But every year we make a token effort to tart up the offices, if only because it boosts morale among the interns and is cheaper than actually paying them an aguinaldo.  But this year we didn't because, well, damndest thing, we just couldn't find any of the decorations.  We looked everywhere, and even queried the maid, whose  organizational creativity is the stuff of legend, but she claimed to have no idea.

But then today, in a pile of old papers, we found the receipt for the Burro Hall mainframe.  Not wanting to misplace such a thing, we climbed up into the storage room, dug out its box, and went to put the receipt inside.  And there, dear reader, is where the Grinch hid Christmas.


It's really not even worth saying anything to her.

It helps to have a box that is clearly and largely labeled NAVIDAD.

PS I could tell you about the mysterious baggies of leftovers I find in the back of the refrigerator....

I wonder what the maids say about us....

You think happened because I couldn't find my Christmas decorations?

Those are Christmas decorations? It looks like a checkered armadillo and a Hawaiian lei bestowed by one Don Ho.

We all honor the baby Jesus in our own way, Rita.
