Regarding Inappropriate Christmas Decorations...

Tonight Jen and I were driving home from our weekly visit to Grandma Jensen's. It seemed like it would be a normal quiet night driving home, however, fate had other things in mind... As we were driving, I was placidly staring out the window at the various Christmas Decorations and admiring their overall “funness” when all of a sudden we came across this beauty-

I started to laugh. I started to cry. I wet my pants (not really, but I could have if I hadn’t stopped laughing). Jen asked me what was so funny. I turned the car around and drove passed Santa again. She started to laugh. She started to cry. She wet her pants (again, not really). Then we drove passed again and repeated the cycle. Then we went home and grabbed the camera!

Jen was at the wheel on the return trip. The objective? I would do a running exit from the car with camera and tripod in hand and (while laughing) capture a picture of Santa. Mission: Easily Probable. Anyway, we got the goods and laughed the whole way home.

Either way, it makes me wonder who designed the decoration and why they didn’t take a few steps back and think, “huh. You know, it looks like Santa’s nipples are glowing.”

Merry Christmas!

Regarding Haircuts...

The other day I needed a haircut. You know how it goes... Your hair starts getting long and it weighs your head down, etc. So I asked Jen to give me a haircut.

She was almost done with everything but she realized that there were still a few hairs too long in the back. So she grabbed the clippers and tried to trim them down. The problem? The #3 guard was no longer on the clippers.

As I felt a fresh breeze over a small portion of my head I began laughing. Jen gasped and covered her mouth. I continued laughing. As you can see from the picture I had a nice chuck taken out of my hair. It still makes me laugh to look at it.

The next day I went to work. People were giving me the strangest looks but I could tell none of them wanted to say anything. ;) Only one person the entire day even said anything. It was one of my co-workers. Her comment? "What happened to your head?" At any rate, my hair has been fixed, it's much shorter than usual, but I thought everyone would enjoy my funny "bad" hairday.
