Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
2008-12-24 - 12:56 a.m.
Christmas Eve is here. I still have to work.
It looks like we'll be closing at 5pm for sure. I'll have to go in at 10am, so I'm posting early.
I got to do a little teasing last night. I went to Carl's Jr. for dinner. At the table next to mine, there was a little girl who started to throw a drama tantrum - a loud one. Her mother started to get exasperated, almost to the point of shouting.
As I got up from the table, I turned to the mom and said, "Santa is watching."
The mom smiled and chuckled. The little girl's eyes got HUGE...and she calmed down a little.
I couldn't resist. I continued. Still talking to the mom, I said, "You have Santa's phone number, right?" I smiled at the little girl. "All mommies have Santa's phone number." And I sauntered out the door.
I saw the little girl through the window...and she was quietly eating her dinner.
Maybe next time, I'll call Brin and pretend she's Mrs. Claus. "Oh, he's busy? Okay, well...there's a little girl who isn't eating her dinner...oh, he knows already? I should've known that..."
Speaking of Brin, she gave me the news last night - the Yankees got Teixiera.
Hell, Steinbrenner just had to print more money.
One of the investors who lost over $1 billion of his clients' funds in the Bernard Madoff swindle committed suicide.
No word if Madoff will be charged.
Okay, I'm going to bed.
I will be posting tomorrow.
Be seeing you.
