This will be my last post of 2010.
I am going to take a break from blogging to do what dad's do this time of year: eat cookies, watch football, construct children's toys and playsets from instructions written in a foreign language, use an entire roll of gift wrap trying to wrap the Mrs.' presents and the final products looking awful, etc.
I'll be back in early January.
In the meantime, I offer this...
Setting: A Hallmark gift store at the local shopping mall.
The family is browsing the Christmas decorations, while our special little guy "Luca" is interested in a holiday display on the wall.
SLAMDUNK: What are you doing Luca?
LUCA: I listening to "Halloween Course".
I looked at the musical Christmas ornament in front of our energetic boy and saw that it was a tribute to Clark Griswold plugging in his outdoor holiday lights--a scene depicted in the comedic film Christmas Vacation.
Curious, I pushed the tiny button on the ornament and was provided with music. Yes, the "Halloween Course" or better known as the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah.
SLAMDUNK: Oh yeah Luca, I like that "Halloween Course" as well.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.
