An Open Letter to The Grinch

Dear Mr. Grinch,

I just wanted to thank you for your lovely outpouring of the holiday spirit by your act of stealing our Christmas lights Saturday night. I suppose I should be flattered that you liked the display that Bob and I worked so hard to set up. I even have a hunch of who you are since there was only one couple that stopped and inquired about the over-sized Christmas lights and how you thought they looked so cool. Why did you need to steal the over-sized bulbs and the lighted tree as well? I am glad you did not steal the nativity scene. I am pretty sure that stealing a nativity scene is a 1st class ticket to Hell.

I do have to wonder what you do in the off season. Do you pinch babies? Kick puppies? Beat up Nuns?

I must admit that you did rob me of some of my holiday spirit, but I refuse to let you ruin the holidays for me. I will continue to decorate for the holidays. I know in my heart that what goes around, come around. You will get your lump of coal!

You Go Phrogg!

Are you kidding me? I take comfort in the fact that although we are surrounded by a bunch of potential yahoos (live close to the local uni) we have yet to get any of our Christmas lights stolen. Now our blue boxes are another story as they apparently make excellent beer coolers once the weather warms up.
