So my huge project to coming to a close at work and I’m finally ready to celebrate Christmas. So I decided we are really going to go grizwald this year with the lights.
Nothing is better in a recession than a completely gratuitous Christmas lghts display.
So today Wes and I pull out everylight we used last year, both inside and out and drag them all outside. Last year was the first year I very neatly rolled them up on extenstion cord hangers I wouldn’t have to spend half the morning untangling them. Aren’t I smart. Wes and I carefully laid every string on the ground and moved on to testing.
We had 20 strings of lights . . .and two worked! I could not beleive the number of lights that didn’t work so I changed my extension cord thinking something was wrong with the testing rig . . . Nope. The damn Chinese made holiday lights, which I purchase last year, had a 90% failure rate. Un flippin believable.
Wes was, of course, disappointed that we couldn’t decorate any more than one tree.
But like Clark Grizwald I won’t give up. I may kick the crap out of a plastic Santa but I won’t giveup!
Boys . . . . let’s go . . . .we’re going to Walmart!
