Pack It Up

So did everyone survive Christmas? I did with minimum of frustration and the spending of a little bit too much money. Here’s a festive little tale to tell:

It was Sunday and we hit the Y to work out (the one Down Town with the picture windows in the saunas…Hubba-Hubba!). After that we skipped over to the Marshall’s store in that plaza that used to be the Colonial Mall. Mark always checks them out because he often finds his favorite type of t-shirts there really cheap. There were two cop cars out front but since no one was screaming and running from the store we didn’t think much of it. As we entered there were two girls about 15 years old walking past us. Funny…they had their hands behind their back. Then we saw the cop walking right behind them. I turned and looked as they all passed by…and sure enough, they were in handcuffs.

I said to Hubby, “What the f*** is there at a Marshall’s store that’s worth shoplifting?” and then realized: They were just there getting their Christmas Shop-Lifting done!


And there’s this wonderful story from out of LA I like to call “Yes Virginia, There Is A Santa Clause…And He Wears a G-String“.

G-String Santa Arrested On DUI Charge

LOS ANGELES — Some gifts from Kris Kringle are better kept wrapped.

A man in a Santa hat was arrested Sunday night for investigation of drunken driving after he was spotted outside Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood wearing a wig, a red lace camisole and a purple G-string, police said.

“We are pretty sure this is not the Santa Claus,” Deputy Chief Ken Garner said.

The suspect was booked into jail after his blood-alcohol level measured just above the state’s legal limit of .08, police said. He was later released on $5,000 bail.

The man, who is 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 280 pounds, also wore black leg warmers and black shoes. His car was towed to an impound yard, police said.
