I Am Not Even Kidding

Just now, my husband was taking out the trash and I heard him walk to the door with it and then turn around and walk back.

"Can you explain?" he asked.

I looked up to see...

(Y'all, I am SO NOT KIDDING)

that the bag of trash he was holding was BLINKING.




You realize what this means, don't you?

Even my freaking TRASH has blinking lights.

But my Christmas Tree? I'd say about two-thirds of it is not blinking at all.

(The trash bag had a discarded child's toothbrush in it--you know the kind that blink for 90 seconds to signal how long to brush?)

Have you considered hanging the trash bag on the tree?
Perfect! Now you can just give him that bag of trash for Christmas. Don't forget to wrap it!

Hah! I was thinking your trash was possessed. That's even funnier. The trash, it mocks you!

Karmic justice, don't you think?

if the trash starts singing or the tree start moving, just pack a bag and come up here for the holiday

Was it Morse code?

Come to think of it, maybe the intermittent blinking of your tree is a MESSAGE. You are receiving special correspondence.

You are so cool.

I SO knew what that was. I've seen that blinking bag'o trash in my history.
Pretty funny! Maybe Rudolph ended up in your trash?

Oh, dear, I'm sorry, but that is conclusive proof that the universe is taunting you. Not nice!

But pretty funny...

Heh.

(PS - if you start thinking the trash really is sending you messages, or if the tree starts talking to you, call me. I'll put a bed on hold on the unit for you.)
