My thoughts on getting a Christmas tree – We don’t really need one. We live in an apartment. We are not even going to be in the apartment on Christmas day. This sounds like a lot of work. We should spend our time and energy on unpacking all those boxes in the hallway, and the living room, and the office. The cat will knock it over. We would have to buy lights. We would have to buy ornaments. We would have to buy a tree stand. This sounds expensive. This sounds like a fire hazard.
Dave’s thoughts on getting a Christmas tree – Santa Clause will not come if we do not have a real live Christmas tree. We might as well just not even celebrate Christmas this year.
Yes, I know, I am the grinch.
I woke up early on Saturday morning to go out Christmas shopping before the shopping rush. I came back with a tree stand, a couple strands of lights and a real live Christmas tree. It’s a little tree. At five feet, or so, I was able to slide it into the back of the car without any trouble, and just a little mess.
Dave’s reaction, “I love you a little bit more.”
Moxie and I both love the tree too. It turns out that a little extra Christmas spirit and a little extra marital harmony are both well worth the trouble.
