Marriage 301, Lecture 525: Le Christmas


SH: You know what I have to do next weekend, right?

Me: Put the snow tires on?

SH: No! The penguin! It's time to put up the Christmas penguin!

Me: Oh good grief.

SH: Are you going to be embarrassed?

Me: At having a 12' inflatable penguin in my front yard? Why should that bother me?

SH: I didn't think so.

Me: But aren't you worried about it being stolen? Maybe you shouldn't put it up.

SH: I'm putting it up.

We could probably arrange for someone to visit your yard with a very large pin.

Why does he want your neighbors to dislike you? The inflatables are the trailer park of Christmas decorations.

I thought it was an 8 foot penquin. 12 feet sounds scary.

Lindy, you are correct. It is only 8 feet. Nothing to worry about, then.

8 feet or 12 feet, the offer of a pin stands.
