I hadn't planned on writing today, but saw something funny last night, and had to share.
After we put the presents under the tree, my wife and I sat down to watch some TV. We wanted to watch some of Saturday Night Live, but the Pope was on. (The nerve of some people!) So we clicked down one station from NBC, to PBS, which was carrying Christmas in Washington D.C.
Just as we tuned in, President Obama was on stage, delivering a speech. He made reference to the First Family, and the camera angle switched to show them. To the right of the screen was Michelle. To her right was their older daughter, then an empty chair, and then their younger daughter. On the empty seat, clearly visible was a printed placard which read:
Seriously? Do they really need to label it? I can't imagine some tourist wandering down there and saying, "Oh look, Marge. There's a nice seat, front and center. You take it. I'll sit here at the end of the aisle."
OK, it probably was just there so that he knew where to sit when they arrived. But still...
Merry Christmas, what's left of it. And to all a good night.
