Sealed With A Snub

This is the fifth entry in my ongoing celebration of fudge. Truly, it does not get any deeper or more meaningful than it does around here.

December 5:

Today, a whole flock of Christmas cards arrived from distant loved ones!

You can't wait to hear how they're doing, what their kids are up to, their ups and downs, joys and sorrows, the sharing of which keeps us close even when the miles and busyness of our lives drive us apart.

Sadly, it turns out that each card is merely a photo and a neutral, pre-printed sentiment like "Glad That's Out of the Way. Signed, The Wehateyou Family".

Heavy sigh, and pass the fudge.

Oh, good heavens. Not only are you forcing me to make fudge, but now I have to actually WRITE an UPDATE so my relatives don't get depressed?! What's next? Volunteering to be the relief society president? ;o)

Wow! I love your family, they put the fun in dys"fun"ctional.
Pass the fudge.

Ach. You just made up my mind for me (hey, that tickled). It's the yearly struggle of wondering is the Christmas form letter hokey or sweet (both possibly, yes?). Everything looks better with a little fudge though. Genius.

Ok - so NO sappy family letter... and NO one liner wehateyou family photo... I guess i'll just go with my standard... send happy new year cards... with neither a photo nor an update. better?

If I had your address, I'd send you a card full of news AND some fudge. See? I loves you.

Circe said...

I know! At least send me 44 cents worth of info! I saw you mention me on Motherboard's blog, read your stuff, decided I love you! Thanks for the laughs!

WHAT - you know the wehateyou family too. I love Christmas cards --but want more then just the photo. I WANT to know a little bit about how your year was.
Not all the gag me I am perfect family stuff, just real stuff. Do people do that ---tell you real stuff.

I love Wendy.

And I like Aunt Dyanne's idea the best. Only mine will probably end up being Happy Prestidents' Day cards.

I bought a bumload of marshmallows and Avery gets home tomorrow so I'm gonna make her some fudge!
